X-ray General Questions

What is an x-ray?

An x-ray is a technique of acquiring images inside the body using the lowest possible radiation dose. The x-ray passes through the body and creates different densities on a digital image plate. The image can be manipulated on screen (e.g. enlarged or density changed) to obtain the optimum picture.

How is the x-ray image stored?

Every patient’s digital x-ray images are stored online and available to our referrers. We can also store x-ray images on film or CD.

Why are x-rays needed?

X-rays are still the most commonly ordered radiology test. Today, they are mainly used to diagnose fractured bones or look for injury or infection.

What is low-dose radiation?

Vision XRAY Group is committed to delivering the highest quality images with the lowest radiation dose possible. For more information, please visit our ABOUT page.

Are x-rays suitable if pregnant?

If pregnant, please consult your referring doctor or local clinic. Please visit our PATIENTS page for more information.

Do I need a referral and an appointment?

At Vision XRAY, no appointment is necessary for a general x-ray. However, you will require a referral from a practitioner.
