An X-ray scan is a medical imaging procedure that uses low levels of radiation to create images of the inside of the body, helping diagnose various medical conditions.
X-ray scans are commonly used to visualise bones, joints, and certain organs, aiding in diagnosing fractures, infections, lung conditions, and more.
In most cases, no special preparation is needed for an X-ray. You might need to remove jewellery, clothing with metal fasteners, and inform the technologist if you’re pregnant.
The actual exposure takes only a fraction of a second. The overall duration depends on the complexity of the images needed and the number of angles being taken.
X-rays involve a small amount of radiation, but the exposure is generally considered safe and well within acceptable limits. The benefits of obtaining diagnostic information usually outweigh the minimal risks.
If you’re pregnant or breastfeeding, it’s important to inform the healthcare provider or technologist before the scan. In some cases, alternative imaging methods might be recommended to minimise radiation exposure.
Yes, you can usually eat and drink normally before an X-ray, unless your specific instructions state otherwise.
In most cases, a referral from a medical practitioner is for an X-ray. If you don’t have a doctor referral, we can arrange for you to have a short consultation with one of our experienced GPs before your X-ray.
The images will be analysed by a radiologist, and the results will be provided to your referrer within 72 hours.
