General X-rays, such as chest, skull, and extremities are performed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
No special preparation is required for most X-rays. Patients may be required to remove clothing, depending on the type of material or the design. The technologist will provide a loose-fitting hospital gown to wear and patients may be asked to remove necklaces or other jewelry. A pregnancy questionnaire may be needed for female patients 10 years of age and older.
Taking an X-ray is just like taking a picture. Patients do not feel anything but may hear the X-ray camera make a noise. X-ray suites are dimly lit and patients must remain still for the exam.
