Having an X-Ray at CHOC Hospital

This short video will describe what you can expect during your child’s X-Ray appointment in the Gregg and Celin Miller Radiology Department at CHOC Hospital.

After checking in at the front desk, you’ll be directed to the radiology department, right across from the admitting desk.

After filling out some paperwork in the radiology lobby, an aide will call your child back, take you to an X-ray room and explain what will happen during the procedure.

In the X-ray room, you’ll see a table, an X-ray standing board, and one hanging X-ray tube.

Your child may need to put on a hospital gown. Depending on the exam, they might stand or lie down.

The X-ray technologist will go behind a console and push a button that takes the X-ray. You will hear a beep when the exposure has occurred.

After the X-ray is finished, the aide will walk you and your child out to the lobby and provide you with a contact card for your child’s doctor for follow up.
