X-RAY

Jewellery, piercings or any other metal or plastic material should be removed before an X-Ray as it may be covering the area of examination: eg. for an Abdominal X-Ray you will need to remove your bra and any other clothing with zips or buttons. You will be given a gown to wear.

null

ABDOMEN, KIDNEYS / URETER/ BLADDER (KUB):

  • Inform your referring doctor if you have recently had a barium sulphate contrast X-ray.

null

PREGNANCY

  • Women should always inform their physician and X-ray technologist if there is any possibility that they are pregnant.
  • An abdominal x-ray is usually not performed on pregnant women so as not to expose the baby to radiation. The ovaries and uterus cannot be shielded during the abdominal X-ray because of their location.
  • Abdominal ultrasound is a common, safe alternative for pregnant women.

THERE IS NO PREPARATION FOR OTHER X-RAY EXAMINATIONS.
