X-Ray & Imaging Clinic

This is the most common type of x-ray investigation. X-Ray is a form of invisible, short wavelength, electromagnetic energy. Low doses can be passed through tissues to produce images of bones, organs and internal tissues. At 108 X-Ray and Imaging these images are processed through a CR reader, which converts them into a digital image.
