How

It is a quick, painless procedure that involves exposing a part of the body to a small dose of ionizing radiation to produce pictures of the inside of the body.

To create a radiograph, you will be positioned with the part of the body being imaged between the x-ray source and the detector.  On exposure, the x-rays will travel through the body and are absorbed in different amounts by different tissues, depending on the density of the tissue they pass through.  This will produce a diagnostic image.

What

Women should always inform the radiographer if there is any possibility that they might be pregnant.  Should the x-rays be necessary, precautions will be taken to minimize the radiation exposure to the baby. 

Take note:
Depending on the area that will be examined, you may want to wear loose, comfortable clothing. You may be asked to change into a gown for the examination and to remove any jewellery or other metallic items from your body before the examination.
