About our service

We offer a walk-in service for general X-ray services (e.g chest, hands, feet, knees, shoulder, spine abdomen and pelvis) from 08.00 to 17.00 on Monday to Friday. A GP or consutlant referral is required for this scan.

What is an X-ray?

A plain X-ray is a quick and painless procedure commonly used to produce images of the inside of the body. It's a very effective way of looking at the bones and can be used to help detect a range of conditions. In St-Vincent’s Private Hospital we provide a wide range of X-ray procedures including chest, abdomen, pelvis, spine and extremities

This 20 minute procedure is performed in our general X-ray room within our radiology department and the procedure is carried out by a radiographer.  

The Procedure
  • You will be asked undress into a gown
  • The radiographer will call you into the X-ray room and explain the procedure depending on the type of X-ray requested by your clinician
  • Depending on what the clinician is asking, for the radiographer will sometimes take more than one x-ray. This is sometimes done because the radiologist may needs two views at right angles to make a diagnosis.
  • A report is done by the radiologist and this is sent to the referring clinician
