X-Rays and Ultrasound
X-Rays are the most frequently used form of medical imaging. They are used to identify fractures, dislocations, infection, arthritis, abnormal bone growth, diseases or to ascertain the presence and/or location of foreign objects.
No preparation needed. But please inform the technologist if any of the following apply:
- If you are pregnant or suspect that you may be, you may be told to postpone the x-ray.
- If you have any previous trauma or surgery to the area please let the technologist know. You may be asked if you have had previous x-rays of the region so that we can request those images to do a comparison.
