X-ray

X-rays are the most common and most widely available examinations we offer and they can be used to image almost any part of the body. Here at Central Queensland Radiology, we use the most up-to-date radiography equipment for general x-rays. We take your images using digital detectors, which are processed via a digital reader. These images are then available for viewing, printing and interpretation by one of our dedicated radiologists. This technology provides very high quality images and importantly reduces the radiation dose required for your examination. It also significantly reduces the need for repeat examinations and is faster.

The radiation exposure during an x-ray is very low and we take every precaution to ensure this dose is minimised. If you know you are or think you may be pregnant, please tell your referring doctor and the radiographer performing your examination.
X-ray at Sunshine Coast Radiology
There is no preparation needed and there are no after effects. Depending on the body part being examined, you may be required to wear a provided gown. We also request removal of jewellery and body piercing items which may be in the field of view. This makes interpretation of the images more accurate.
Our friendly radiography team will clearly explain what you have to do during the appointment. You may be asked to hold your breath for the x-ray or stay in a certain position, but you will be guided through the process.
An x-ray examination can take from 5 – 20 minutes to complete, depending on the examination requested.
Your results are provided through a secure online system to your doctor or healthcare provider.
Any referral for a scan is valid at Central Queensland Radiology Clinic, even if it has been written on a referral form from another radiology provider.
