X-Ray

X-Ray at Beacon Park Hospital

What is an X-Ray?

X-Rays are a type of high-energy radiation that can pass through the body. They are used in hospitals to produce images of the inside of your body. The use of X-Rays in hospitals are subject to strict regulations, and are therefore only performed when absolutely necessary.

Different parts of the body absorb varying amounts of radiation. The dose of radiation you receive from a plain-film X-Ray is considered to be very low – equivalent to 1-3 days of natural background radiation. 

X-Ray examinations are usually carried out in a hospital radiology department by a Radiographer or Consultant Radiologist. These are trained healthcare professionals who specialise in X-Ray techniques, ensuring that you receive an optimised examination.
