What to Expect
During an X-Ray, a small amount of radiation is passed through a concentrated area of the body which is absorbed by structures (such as bone). You may prefer to wear clothes which do not contain zippers, buttons, or other metal. If you do this you will most likely not need to change into a gown for your X-Ray.
