You will be required to remove jewelry, glasses, pins, clips, hearing aid or any other metallic objects from the head and neck region that may obscure the image.
Whilst standing, a pair of cone shaped ear plugs will be gently positioned in each ear, very similar to headphones. This aligns both ears and ensures you remain still for the x-ray. The machine will move alongside you as it is taking the image.
It is very important to stay very still while the x-ray is taken.
You will not feel any discomfort during or after the procedure.
This x-ray also takes 15 seconds.
