When you visit Saddletown Radiology for your IME X-ray, you will be welcomed by our team, asked to complete any paperwork then asked to change into a provided gown.
You will be asked to remove any metal objects including jewelry, watches, clips, pins, and any clothes with metal buttons, zippers, or snaps.
If you are female, between the ages of 11 to 55 you will be asked about the possibility of pregnancy. If pregnant, you will be required to complete a consent form prior to proceeding.
Your radiologist will help move you into different positions while standing with your chest against an upright board. You will then be asked to take a deep breath and hold it while your X-ray is taken. It is important that you stay very still while the x-ray is taken.
Once our radiologist confirms that we have captured good quality images, you will be free to leave.
Your X-rays will be reviewed by our Radiologist who will compile a report and send it to your doctor.
If you have any questions about our Immigrant and Refugee X-Ray program, please be sure to talk to our team prior to your x-ray procedure.
