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.

X-rays requested by GPs are carried out at the Integrated Care Centre (ICC), Radcliffe Street, Oldham (adjacent to the main bus station)

Patients can attend without an appointment between the hours of 08:00 and 20:00 Monday – Friday, and 09:00 – 12:00 on Saturday (excluding Public Holidays), provided they have been issued with an X-ray request form by the surgery.

Patients should not attend the hospital X-ray department unless specifically instructed to do so

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