What are X-rays?
X-rays are a form of electromagnetic radiation that can be used to create images of the human body. Our radiographers perform x-ray studies using specialised machines and computers for a wide variety of conditions.
X-rays are useful for screening of medical conditions as well as diagnosing emergent and chronic diseases. The x-ray studies are interpreted by radiologists who will document their findings and diagnosis in a report for referring doctors and patients.
We provide x-ray reporting services during office hours for general practice doctors while the specialist outpatient clinic and 24/7 x-ray services are for emergency and inpatient cases.
Are X-rays safe?
When doing an X-ray, there will be exposure to radiation. However, the dose of radiation is usually low and, in most cases, equivalent to a few days of radiation exposure from naturally occurring sources such as the sun.
