HOW TO PREPARE FOR YOUR X-RAY
  • Continue taking your current medications as normal unless specified by your physician.
  • For most x-ray exams, there are no restrictions on what you may eat or drink.  Exceptions will be specified by your physician.
  • Please inform your physician and Blue Star Imaging if you have any allergies, especially contrast materials.  Women should always inform their physician and x-ray technologist if there is any possibility that they are pregnant.  Many imaging test are not performed during pregnancy as to not expose the fetus to unnecessary radiation.  If an x-ray is necessary, precautions will be taken to minimize radiation exposure to the baby.

HOW TO PREPARE FOR YOUR ARTHROGRAM
  • Continue taking your current medications as normal unless specified by your physician.
  • For most x-ray exams, there are no restrictions on what you may eat or drink.  Exceptions will be specified by your physician.
  • Please inform your physician and Blue Star Imaging if you have any allergies, especially contrast materials.  Women should always inform their physician and x-ray technologist if there is any possibility that they are pregnant.  Many imaging test are not performed during pregnancy as to not expose the fetus to unnecessary radiation.  If an x-ray is necessary, precautions will be taken to minimize radiation exposure to the baby.
  • During the exam, the x-ray technologist will position you on an x-ray table.  The technologist and radiologist will explain step-by-step explanations during your exam.  The radiologist will clean the area prior to injection, administer a numbing agent and inject the contrast material into your joint.  There may be slight discomfort from the numbing agent and/or the contrast material.  It is very important to hold still for this exam, as any movement can cause the images to be blurry.  Several x-ray images will be taken during the exam.
  • After the exam you will need to rest the joint of interest for 24 hours after the exam.  Since the contrast is injected into the joint space, the joint is susceptible to injury if extra pressure is applied to it.  Do not submerge the joint under water for 48 hours since there is a hole in the joint space, this will minimize the risk of infection after the exam.  Contact your physician if you experience pain, redness, or swelling after the exam, this could be a sign of infection or adverse contrast reaction.
