X-Ray

doctor examining an x-ray

An 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.

Once you have been referred for an x-ray you will need to make an appointment to have this carried out.

If it is a chest x-ray that has been requested then there is a walk in service at Bolton One and Royal Bolton Hospital for this to be carried out. They are carried out between 9AM and 4.30PM at Bolton One and between 8-9am and 4.30-7.30PM at the Royal Bolton Hospital, Radiology F-Block. This service is strictly for chest x-rays only. You will need to take the request form with you to the appointment.

For all other x-rays you will need to phone 390507 for an appointment. The appointments clerk will advise at the time of your call where you will need to attend for your appointment. Again you will need to take the x-ray request form with you to your appointment.

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