A radiograph is an X-ray image obtained by placing a part of the patient in front of an X-ray detector and then illuminating it with a short x-ray pulse. Bones contain calcium, which absorbs X-rays efficiently. This reduces the amount of X-rays reaching the detector in the shadow of the bones, making them clearly visible on the radiograph.
Fortius has a state-of-the-art X-ray suite enabling a wide range of plain radiographs as well as imaging specific to individual musculoskeletal requirements, such as long leg measurements and whole spine imaging.
Fortius operates a walk-in service for X-ray so if you have a referral from a medical practitioner you don’t need to book an appointment, just come along to the clinic. To find out more about booking an X-ray appointment, or referring a patient for an X-ray, please click here.
