hi,

 

X-Ray is electromagnetic radiation.

its in the 0.01 to 10 nm wavelenght.

dont think it will be an issue.

 

The machine itself could interfere, but not much.

The biggest issue with X-ray rooms is that they have a lot of shielding to protect users outside the room from electromangetic radiation.  That means if you have an access point outside of the room, very little RF can get into a space that is shielded.
