An x-ray device uses low-dose radiation to create pictures of bones and other internal tissues such as your lungs and bowel.
Bankstown Lidcombe Medical Imaging invests in state-of-the-art digital x-ray equipment, resulting in excellent image quality at a fraction on the conventional x-ray radiation dose.
X-rays are an effective and quick way of evaluating internal parts of your body such as bones and lungs.
We provide all forms of general x-rays these include specific Chiropractic spinal x-rays, as well as dedicated dental x-rays, also known as O.P.G. and T.M.J’s (temporo-mandibular joints).
There is no special preparation required for most x-rays. Upon arrival you may be asked by the radiographer 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.
You will be exposed to a very small amount of radiation when you receive an x-ray. At Perth Radiological Clinic, we use advanced digital x-ray equipment to ensure you are exposed to the minimum amount of radiation needed to obtain adequate images.
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.
Please bring any previous x-rays with you on the day of your examination.
