An X-Ray is a quick and painless diagnostic test used to help diagnose many health conditions. X-Rays work by projecting a form of radiation through part of your body to produce a black and white image of the bones, joints and soft tissues. An X-Ray can be used to check:

  • for bone fractures or infection
  • joint damage or inflammation
  • soft tissues and organs for signs of disease

Our service

We provide a comprehensive range of X-Ray examinations during out-patient appointments, including:

  • skull
  • spinal
  • chest
  • abdominal
  • pelvic
  • extremity – arms, legs, feet and hands
  • chest x-rays for visa/medical purposes.

Your X-Ray

An X-Ray scan usually takes a few minutes depending on the part of the body is being examined. Most of this time is spent helping you get into position and preparing the equipment. Your Radiographer will ask you to lie down, sit or stand so that the part of your body being X-Rayed is in the optimal position for scanning. The part of your body being examined is exposed to radiation for a fraction of a second during the scan.

If you are pregnant, or if there is a possibility that you may be pregnant please tell the radiographer prior to receiving your X-Ray scan.

Your results

All X-Rays are reported by a Consultant Radiologist typically within 48 hours. Results will be sent to your referring clinician directly, where you can obtain the results.
