We've been referred to have my 9 yr old daughters pelvis x rayed after a fall she had. She was balancing on a bar at the park and slipped landing legs apart on the metal bar. The concern is a fracture and bone fragments in her organs. The chances of it are low but dr just wants to be sure. We will also need ultrasound of bladder.
The x Ray is my worry as its near reproductive organs.

Would you X-ray child's pelvis?

They wouldn't do an X-ray there unless they were worried. You could always do an ultrasound first to see if there is damage in the pelvis first/

The risk from one X-ray is actually extremely low. We are all exposed to background radiation everyday. The dose for one X-ray is usually less than a persons annual exposure.
DH works in this field and has alway been happy for me to have X-rays as required as have his colleagues in regard to their children.
If you are concerned you could call the radiology practice and discuss it with them and as previously suggested start with the ultrasound.

By the time I was 9 I'd had about 5 broken bones! No issues with reproduction here - if doctors are recommending it I think it would be wise to take their advice.

Absolutely. I had X Ray's on my spine as a teen and no reproductive problems here. I've also had CT scans and chemo all before having DS (conceived naturally)

Absolutely. As a mum to kids with hip dysplasia I have never hesitated having X-rays.
Just a question for those who suggested ultrasound. After 12 months my girls were too old for ultrasounds to shop anything on the hips and had to move to X-rays. Why would the pelvis be different?
