I am currently working on a presentation, which is about a diagnosis of a type of disease. However, I am not sure about the word that put in front of "x-rays". Is there a better phrase which has the similar meaning to "doing x-rays"? Does "Conducting x-rays" work? This is a kinda homework+synonym question, but I didn't find tag for homework. Thanks for your help

    In general what is used for photographs is OK for x-rays. I would use take, as in "I took photos of all the buildings.", or "We took x-rays of his leg." – user3169 Sep 22 '16 at 1:52

    "to X-ray" is a transitive verb in English; see Collins. We x-rayed her abdomen. – P. E. Dant Reinstate Monica Sep 22 '16 at 3:21
