What is an
X-RAY

An x-ray is the most commonly performed investigation for assessing injured limbs or examining the chest for possible infection. An x-ray image (or radiograph) is produced when a very small amount of radiation passes through the body and strikes a sheet of sensitive film or a detector placed on the other side of the body. You will not feel any discomfort as a result of the x-ray. Please bring any previous x-rays with you to your examination.

You will be exposed to a very small amount of radiation when you receive an x-ray. At Mermaid Beach Radiology we use advanced digital x-ray equipment to minimize the radiation required to obtain the image. If you are pregnant or suspect that you may be, you should tell your doctor or radiographer before the test is performed as special precautions may have to be taken.

Before an
X-RAY?

You do not need to make an appointment for an X-Ray at Mermaid Beach Radiology. 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 before your examination. You may also be asked to remove jewellery, eyeglasses and any metal objects that may obscure the images.

After an
X-RAY?

There is no specific after care required as a result of your x-ray.
