There are no food or drink limits. Your child may wear whatever he/she is comfortable in to the test. The X-ray will take just a few minutes to complete.
A bone age is ordered by the provider during your child's visit and is taken that same day. No appointment is necessary.
The bone age X-ray is taken in radiology. Your child will sit on a stool and wear a heavy "apron" that covers the front of the body. This "apron" will protect your child from radiation during the X-ray.
Your child will place his or her left hand on the X-ray machine with fingers spread. The technologist will shine a light on your child's hand to help while taking the picture.
