CRYSTAL CLEAR IMAGING
Within a matter seconds we can
see what’s going on.
It’s been over 100 years since we first had the ability to look right through the body and see what’s going on inside.
WHY HAVE X-RAYS?
Your Clinician may ask for you to undergo an X-ray investigation. X-rays are routinely used to view structures inside the body such as bones, joints and lungs. Prime Health’s X-ray machine is one of the most sophisticated machines in the country and so although you will be exposed to a small dose of radiation, the wonders of modern technology mean that those doses can be kept to a minimum.
We will ask you to arrive about 5-10 minutes before your allocated X-ray time (unless you are already attending a clinic at the Centre) so that you can relax with a drink and complete a Registration Form. One of our specialist Radiographers will then explain the X-ray process and take you through to the Diagnostic Suite to get changed and deposit any valuables as necessary.
Once your X-ray has been completed and you have got changed and collected your belongings, you will be handed a copy of your images on a disk to take with you. The X-ray images will then be viewed and reported on by one of our experts Radiologists and we will forward the results onto the referring clinician within a couple of days. Your X-ray images will be kept safe and secure, so if you ever need another copy then we can access them easily.
