You will have your X-ray at Benenden Hospital’s diagnostic imaging centre - the Robinson suite. We use some of the latest technology to provide more accurate diagnostic imaging and a better experience. The images from your X-ray are then sent to a radiologist to examine.
With most X-rays, you can eat and drink as normal beforehand, but occasionally you may be asked to fast for a few hours before.
If you are pregnant, or suspect you are pregnant, please tell the radiographer immediately. You may not be able to have the examination due to the small risk of radiation that could harm your unborn baby.
It is a good idea to wear loose clothing that does not contain metal such as zips or studs, and remove any jewellery beforehand.
You will be able to continue your normal daily activities, including driving, after your X-ray.
