You might want to inquire about the amount of radiation used during the test with your healthcare provider. Inquire about the risks as they pertain to you.
Consider keeping track of all X-rays you receive, including previous scans and X-rays for other reasons. Show your provider this list. Radiation risks may be linked to the number of X-rays you’ve had and the number of X-ray treatments (if you had any )you’ve had over time.
If you’re pregnant or think you might be pregnant, tell your doctor. Radiation can cause birth defects if it is received during pregnancy. If you need a sinus X-ray, the technologist will take extra precautions to limit radiation exposure to the foetus.
Depending on your specific health condition, you may face additional dangers. Before the procedure, make sure to discuss any concerns you have with your provider.
