Diagnostic X-Ray

The type of X-ray your doctor will order depends on what part of your body needs examining and for what purpose.

How to prepare for the exam

  • You may be asked to wear a gown during your exam, depending on the area that will be examined.
  • You may also be asked to remove jewelry, eyeglasses, and any other metal objects or clothing that could obscure the X-ray image.
  • Depending on the area being exposed, the technologist may have you wear a lead apron to shield your sex organs from exposure to X-rays. The lead apron is used simply as a precaution.

Please notify the technologist if you are pregnant.
