What to expect during the test

You will be positioned such that the body part that needs to be scanned is placed between the X-ray machine and the film.
Once you are positioned you will be asked to hold steady for a few moments while the X-ray is taken. You will have to hold your breath and remain still while the images are being taken to avoid any motion blur.
Once the X-ray image is generated, an experienced radiologist at the centre will analyse and read it. A report will be prepared with the findings and shared with the patient.

How to prepare for the procedure

Avoid wearing clothing with buttons, snaps, or zippers or you may be asked to change into a hospital gown.
You will be asked to remove jewellery or any metallic objects.
Inform your doctor if –
1. You are pregnant or lactating
2. If you have any metal implants from prior surgeries
3. If you use an IUD (intrauterine device)
