Before going for the X-ray, there are several preparations and precautions required. While going for the exam, dress comfortably, or you may need to change into a gown. Make sure you inform your health expert if you’re pregnant, breastfeeding or have claustrophobia. Metal artifacts, such as jewelry, eyeglasses, dentures, and hairpins can cause pictures to be distorted. Therefore, leave them at home.
Inform your health expert about your health condition, symptoms, and medications you’re taking to give them a brief idea about your medical history.
Also, mention if you have a family history of heart disease, asthma, diabetes, renal disease, or thyroid issues as these increase the chances of negative reaction. In case you’re pregnant, mention that as well.
