General radiography exams take images of different parts of the body such as the chest, foot, hand or even spine. X-rays are relatively quick procedures that require the patient to hold still for only a few minutes at a time. One parent is typically welcomed in the room with the child. Depending on the area being imaged, your child will stand, sit or lay down and will be asked to hold specific positions while the X-rays are being taken. If they are lying down, your child will have a great view of our lighted ceiling panels that feature images of sea life, including stingrays, fish and turtles. For a child under age 4 a special chair is used for chest x-rays.
