Diagnostic and X-Ray Facilities

X-rays, AKA radiographs, are often the first line investigation for demonstrating bone and joint abnormalities. X-rays involve the exposure of the patient to a very small dose of ionising radiation to produce a 2D projectional image of part of the body in which all the anatomical structures are superimposed on one another. Frequently, a radiographic examination requires two separate X-rays to be obtained at right angles. X-rays are printed out on film which could then be viewed on a light-box. While X-rays show exquisite bony detail soft tissue resolution is limited and so other imaging techniques may be utilised to demonstrate soft tissue pathology.
