An x-ray is a quick and painless procedure used to produce images of the inside of the body. It is an effective way of looking at the skeletal system, teeth, abdomen, pelvis and chest, which can be useful in detecting a range of conditions. The examination is performed by a trained Radiographer.


For your x-ray examination, you will be asked to either sit, lie or stand. For some chest x-rays for example, you will stand in front of a specialised plate that contains x-ray sensors; whereas for others, you will lie or sit on a specialised plate and the x-ray machine will move over your body.

It is important to stay still while the images are being taken so that the best possible images are captured.

Although the Radiographers will go behind a screen to capture the x-ray image, you will always be seen and heard. The x-ray should not be uncomfortable or painful.
