What happens during the x-ray?

The radiographer will ask you to confirm some details, including your identity. Once in the x-ray room, you will be advised on the position required for the examination. You may be asked to lie on the table or stand against the equipment so that the part of your body being examined is in the correct position.

The radiographer will stand behind a screen to take the x-ray.
You will need to stay still so the image isn’t blurred, but you won’t feel anything and should feel quite comfortable.
