X-Ray

doctor examining an x-rayAn X-ray is a widely used diagnostic test to examine the inside of the body. X-rays are a very effective way of detecting problems with bones, such as fractures. They can also often identify problems with soft tissue, such as pneumonia or breast cancer.

If you have a X-ray, you will be asked to lie on a table or stand against a surface so that the part of your body being X-rayed is between the X-ray tube and the photographic plate.

An X-ray is usually carried out by a radiographer, a healthcare professional who specialises in using imaging technology, such as X-rays and ultrasound scanners.

You can find out more about x-ray tests, how they are performed, their function and the risks by visiting the NHS Choices website.

MRI Scans

We do not issue prescriptions for Diazepam for patients who request such sedatives prior to an MRI scan. You should discuss this with your hospital radiology team who can supply videos, online help and prescribe if deemed suitable.

The  Royal College of Radiologists states that , a “trained and credential team should administer sedation and analgesia”. There is  also an emphasis on thorough pre-procedure assessment, planning and monitoring.

The Practice is  sympathetic to such situations however this policy is enforced on medico-legal advice.
