We're going to push on the x-ray tube on here now

At a radiology room

push on the x-ray tube ←

Doctor: Gloria, we’re going to push on the x-ray tube on here now. Just watch your head and sit up here. OK. I’ll help you with
your leg if you just lie down. Great. OK.


What does “we’re going to push on the x-ray tube on here now” mean?

It’s really difficult to understand. Here is my suggestion:

We’re going to move over to the X-ray tube…

The audio in that video is poor quality. I watched the video several times before I understood what he said.

He’s not saying “push on”. I think he’s saying:

“…we’re going to put you on the X-ray tube here now. Just watch your head and sit up here. OK”

He is saying “put you”. It might sound a little like “push you” because he slurs the words a little. This is very common in my local dialect.

This is very similar to words like:
Gotcha ( got you )
Watcha ( watch you )
Catcha ( catch you )

In the dialect where I live it’s very common to use slurs like the above. Also contractions like
Wanna ( want to )
Gonna ( going to )
Seein’ (seeing )
Travelin’ (traveling )

I think it’s what I originally said.

“…we’re going to put you on the X-ray tube here now. Just watch your head and sit up here. OK”

I can’t understand what he says just before “we’re”. I don’t think it’s “Gloria” but it might be.

I think what he said was X-ray tube. However she sat on the table.

The X-ray tube is part of the X-ray machine. The tube is the thing that generates the X-rays. The machines also has a detector ( sensor ) and a bunch of electronics for processing.
