Bone Age Study X-ray

A Bone Age Study estimates the maturity of a child’s skeletal system.

What to expect during the procedure:
• X-rays are taken of the patient’s left wrist and hand

Preparation:
• Please tell your physician and the technologist if you are pregnant or think you may be pregnant.
• You will be provided with your own private locked dressing room which has an area to hang your clothing. You will be asked to remove any clothing, jewelry, or other objects that could obscure the x-ray. If you are asked to remove clothing, you will be given a gown to wear.
