Plain Film Imaging (X-Rays)
These x-rays are usually quite straightforward and involve a part of your body being placed as close to the x-ray film or plate as possible. These x-rays are similar to having a photograph taken. Some examples of when they are used:- to look for broken bones, teeth, to investigate pain, look at your lungs and heart. They are generally taken by a radiographer and reported on by a radiologist or reporting radiographer.
X-rays are usually requested by your GP or by the doctor or dentist within the hospital who is responsible for your medical care.
CT scanning involves using x-rays and computers to produce images of internal organs. It takes many cross-section images, building up a picture of any body part and can produce detailed 3-D images of things like bones, blood vessels, heart, growths and tumours.. Sometimes you will be asked not to eat.
