How to Prepare for Chest X-ray Test
As noted above, usually a gown is worn and metal containing materials are removed from the body before an X-ray is taken. Pregnant women need to notify the doctor and the technician as some or all images may not be taken in order to avoid unnecessary X-ray radiation exposure to the fetus.
