How you will be positioned and where the X-ray camera points will depend on the body part the doctor needs to see. You might have an X-ray of a bone, your lungs or your abdomen (belly). You may need to stand, sit or lie down for an X-ray. </p><p>X-rays are very quick and <strong>they don’t hurt</strong>. They are especially useful for taking pictures of bones.</p><h2>X-ray results</h2><p>A specialist doctor called a radiologist will look at your X-ray pictures. Your doctor will then tell you what the pictures show and what that means. Your doctor will let you know how long you will need to wait before the pictures are ready. </p>https://assets.aboutkidshealth.ca/AKHAssets/X-rays_and_cancer.jpg
