General X-ray

An X-ray is a quick and painless procedure commonly used to produce images of the inside of the body. It's a very effective way of looking at bones and can be used to help detect a range of conditions.

The hospital has four general x-ray rooms, one of which also provides dental x-ray facilities, and including x-ray rooms sited in the outpatients and fracture clinic departments; there are also two emergency department x-ray rooms.  These are all fitted with GE digital x-ray equipment; the x-ray rooms produce over 55,000 x-ray examinations per year.

The general x-ray department x-rays patients from the wards, outpatient clinics, physiotherapy department, fracture clinic, children’s clinic, GPs and the Emergency room, which is usually very busy with a wide range of major trauma and minor injuries.

Dental imaging is performed in the general X-ray department providing imaging for the emergency, orthodontic, maxillofacial and ENT departments.
