I'm pretty sure when I had my chest X-rayed, I didn't have to take my bra off.

Only the little metal clasp on the bra, nothing else.

One would imagine not. Considering that X-Rays are powerful enough to go through everything except your bones, I'm sure they can probably handle your racey underwear.

If you do have to take it off you could always ask for a female none lesbion radiologist to the xray that way you know the pervs are away Although I would not ask for a none lesbian if I you.

I can't remember if I had to take my top off or not.

Yes, just with the added risk of getting cancer.

Pretty much yep, exrays are usauly very comfortable, its not painfull or anything. You really have nothing to worry about other than the endless waiting if your going via the NHS.

Also if you find the staff are not that nice don't let that put you off hospitals, I have found staff in places like Xray can be like robots and treat you like machins, but on the wards you could not meet a nicer bunch of people. The staff including nurses and doctors are very freindly and caring. At least this is my experience from the hospitals I have visited in the last year or so.

Also if you do have to take your top off, don't be shy, they have seen it a million times a before.

He's just winding you up, all the staff who work in xray don't drop down dead of cancer after ten years, although they do have to wear protective clothing thats only because they do it every day of the year.

You have nothing whats so ever to worry about,/

you'll be able to leave your bra on and possibly your top too, dont worry it will be fine. Just like having your photo taken except you dont need to smile thats optional!

And they always say that no one else is allowed in the room. That makes me laugh

You know better than me I'm sure... but does the underwiring of bras contain metal of any kind?
