The parts of the body not examined are protected with special aprons. During the filming, a person is asked to take a different body position - to obtain images in different projections. While the equipment is working, it is prohibited to move.

The procedure takes no more than 10 minutes. An experienced radiologist deals with decoding the image, the results are sent to the attending physician for a diagnosing and development of a treatment regimen.
