In brief: Avoid if possible
Try and avoid during pregnancy if possible.
However, if xray is necessary, the dose of radiation is small, and the major risk is for the child to develop a type of cancer. The risk of cancer however, is extremely low. Xrays are not associated with miscarriage or birth defects.
