Lumbar Spine X-ray

What to expect during the procedure:

  • Images of your lumbar spine will be obtained from multiple directions. The specific images obtained depend on your symptoms.

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.
