X-ray for superior diagnosis
An X-ray is a quick and painless diagnostic procedure that produces images of the inside of the body. It's a very effective way of looking at the bones and can be used to help detect a range of conditions.
X-rays can be used to examine most areas of the body. They're mainly used to look at the bones and joints, although they're sometimes used to detect problems affecting soft tissue, such as internal organs.
Problems that may be detected during an X-ray include:
- bone fractures and breaks
- scoliosis (abnormal curvature of the spine)
- non-cancerous and cancerous bone tumours
- lung problems, such as pneumonia and lung cancer
- dysphagia (swallowing problems)
- heart problems, such as heart failure
- breast cancer

How it works
The X-ray procedure is very quick and you won't feel anything while it's carried out.
Most of the time is spent getting you into the best position to ensure that we get an accurate image. You'll be asked to lie on a table or stand against a flat surface so that the part of your body being examined can be positioned in the right place. The X-ray machine will be carefully aimed at the part of the body being examined by the X-ray technician, who will operate the machine from behind a screen. While the X-ray is being taken, you'll need to keep still so the image produced isn't blurred. More than one X-ray may be taken from different angles to provide as much information as possible.
Report of findings
The X-ray images will be examined by a clinician before you're told the results. We will arrange an appointment to discuss our findings within a few days of the X-ray.
You won't experience any after effects from the X-ray and will be able to go home.
