We use X-Ray to clear patients that may be
contra-indicated for MRI during the screening process. The X-Ray
examination is able to demonstrate where a foreign object or
implant is anatomically in the body, and whether it has any
metallic component. X-Rays may also be requested by our referrers,
including our One Stop Clinicians.
The X-Ray room uses ionising radiation when taking an image
therefore females of child-bearing age will be asked about
pregnancy prior to the examination taking place.
