Plain X-Ray

This is the most common type of x-ray investigation. X-Ray is a form of invisible, short wavelength, electromagnetic energy. Low doses can be passed through tissues to produce images of bones, organs and internal tissues. At 108 X-Ray and Imaging these images are processed through a CR reader, which converts them into a digital image.

Using our equipment any part of the body can be x-rayed, however the parts most commonly examined include:

  • ‘Stork views’ - to exclude pelvic instability for ‘Gilmore’s Groin’
  • Abdomen
  • Ankles
  • Cervical spine
  • Chest
  • Hips
  • Knees
  • Lumbar spine
  • Pelvis
