Can I refuse to have an X-Ray?

I am 14 and my mom is taking me tomorrow to get x rays done. I refuse to take them because I do not believe in radiation I am a strong believer against taking or doing anything medically that is unneeded. Can I refuse to take an X-Ray underage?

    No,she is your mom and you can't stop her-its actually for your own good,but its not that good to take x rays a lot,but its fine to take it like three times a year

    if the reason u have to take x-ray isnt too serious then they might think about it, especially if u make a big fuss about it, but itherwuse I dont think they would agree, also taking into account that your underage because diagnosis is considered important by doctors after health concerns

    i had an MRI, much less radiation than x- ray

    however, in some cases, an MRI cant accomplish what an x-ray can

    ask your doctor what they think is the most effective

    plz answer mine???
