    Son is having an x-ray on his back today. Omnipod is on his arm. Instruction manual says to remove pod, but not sure if that just applies when pod is on area being x-rayed. Anyone know?

    Mine had xrays on her knees and we left the omnipod on her arm and it was fine. Your situation they are a little bit closer.

    I've had an abdomen X-ray, with the pod on my abdomen, and it was fine. The tech said that it would be fine because it way not obstructing the exact area he needed an X-ray of.

    The pod looks pretty cool on the X-ray.
