X-Ray

Many people treat their bodies as if they were rented from Hertz – something they are using to get around in but nothing they genuinely care about understanding.

X-ray allows us to see through a person’s skin and capture pictures inside the body. This fast, painless exam provides us with basic understanding of your conditions and the right answers to your pain, symptoms and query.

Our X-ray radiographer will guide you into certain positions before the X-ray picture is taken. It is important to pay attention to the X-ray technologist’s instruction.

Do stay still when the X-ray picture is being taken, so that your picture will turn out clear and sharp.

Before your exam…

You will be asked to be change into a patient gown, remove all metal objects/piercing and jewellery accessories.

Please let our staff know if you are pregnant. It possible, you should avoid having an X-ray when you are pregnant. This is because X-ray uses ionising radiation which can cause a small increased risk of the baby developing cancer in childhood.
