What Affects the Test
Reasons you may not be able to have the test or why the results may not be helpful include:
- If you can't remain still during the test. This may cause the pictures to be blurry.
- If you are very overweight. This can make it hard to see details in some types of X-ray pictures.
- If you are pregnant and need an X-ray of a leg in the area close to the pelvis.
