What is an X-RAY
To allow our doctors to understand your unique needs, please bring any previous scans with you to your examination.
At Mermaid Beach Radiology in Queensland, Australia, we use advanced digital x-ray equipment to minimise any discomfort in obtaining an image. If you are pregnant or suspect that you may be, you must tell your doctor or radiographer before the test is performed as special precautions may have to be taken.
We are a Bulk Billing provider for some exams and so we will ensure that any payment for your treatment is made directly from Medicare if possible. If you have any questions about how the Medicare benefits system works, you can check the Medicare website for more information.
Before an X-RAY?
You do not need to make an appointment for any x-ray imaging services at Mermaid Beach Radiology on the Gold Coast, Queensland. There is no special preparation required for most x-rays. You can eat and drink normally before and after the scan. You may be asked to change into a gown by staff before your examination. You may also be asked to remove jewellery, eyeglasses and any metal objects that may obscure the images.
Usually, it would be useful for you to bring any reports that previous radiologists have provided you with or any results that specialists have provided as a result of any previous imaging procedures.
After an X-RAY?
There is no specific aftercare required as a result of your scan.
We take very good care of our patients here at Mermaid Beach Radiology, and if you feel that that you are experiencing any anxiety or discomfort please let us know.
