Generally, for plain X-rays, there is no preparation. As with any medical procedure, be sure to inform your physician or the technologist if there is any possibility that you are pregnant or if you have a history of allergies.
Depending on the area of your body to be X-rayed, you may need to change into a gown or pajamas upon arrival. When you have an X-ray, it will usually require at least two views of the body part to be taken. Occasionally, multiple views are taken.
