So You're About to Get an X-ray...

 

What is an XRAY?

 

An x-ray takes pictures of the bones inside your body.

 

 

Why is an X RAY important?

 

The doctor needs to see what the inside of your body looks like. These pictures will help show the doctor what he or she needs to do to help you feel better.

 

 

What is it like to have an XRAY?

 

● You will go to Radiology for your x-ray. The XRAY room in radiology will be cold and dark. Sometimes the XRAY can come to your room.

● You may have to lie down, sit up or stand up for your x-ray.

● The x-ray hangs from the ceiling.

● The x-ray technologist will move the x-ray machine over the part of the body that the doctor needs to see. The machine will make beeping noises as the pictures are taken.

● You may be asked to move a little during the x-ray to make sure the technologist gets the pictures the doctor needs.

● After the x-ray technologist has the pictures that are needed, you can leave Radiology.

 

The XRAY will not touch you and it will not hurt.

 

 

What is your job during the XRAY?

 

It is your job to hold very still during you XRAY.

 

 

What helps during an XRAY?
