    Am slightly stressing tonight my daughter hurt her hand tonight and had an X-ray at A&E and completely forgot that she had a pump.. only since returning home, the massive penny dropped - anyone else had this and was your pump ok? Any advice welcomed.
    Many thanks

    My initial thoughts.
    Radiographers isolate the part they want to x-ray, so your body isn't overexposed to radiation.
