X-ray

 

Procedure. During your exam, our X-ray technician will ask you to place your body in certain positions before the X-ray picture is taken. It is important that you stay still when the X-ray picture is being taken, so that your picture will turn out clear and sharp .

Exam Time. Taking the actual X-ray picture takes a only few seconds. The entire procedure, including positioning, typically takes 10-15min.

Pregnancy. If you are pregnant, do let our clinic staff know. Our doctor may suggest a different imaging method that does not use radiation, such as MRI or ultrasound.

 


 

Radiology Consult. Our clinic doctor will be available on-site to answer any questions you may have about the entire procedure.

Do contact us if you have any other enquiries.

Did You Know?

The discovery of X-rays was accidental.
German physicist Wilhelm Roentgen (1845 – 1923) was studying the path of electricity and experimenting with a glass bulb that emits fluorescent light when a high voltage current is passed through it. He noticed that the beam turned a screen 9 feet away greenish fluorescent despite being shielded by heavy black cardboard.
Roentgen correctly concluded that he was dealing with a new kind of ray, which he termed X-rays. To test his discover, Roentgen made an X-ray image of his wife Bertha’s hand, which showed the bones of her hand and a hefty ring.
