The X-Ray Group uses the most up-to-date digital radiography equipment for general x-rays. The images are taken utilising digital detectors and are processed via a digital reader. These images are then available for viewing, printing and interpretation by the radiologist. This technology reduces the radiation dose required for the examination and significantly reduces the need for repeat examinations. It is also faster.
Depending on the body part being examined, the patient may be required to wear a provided gown. We also request removal of jewellery and body piercing items which may be in the field of view. This makes interpretation of the images more accurate.
