You are not required to undertake any advance preparation for an X-ray.
Upon arriving at Medscan Double Bay, you will be taken to a change room. You will be requested to remove relevant clothing and jewelry and to wear an examination gown.
All metal objects, such as keys, clips, buttons, coins and mobile phones, must be removed from the area being imaged.
You will be positioned between the X-ray tube and the X-ray cassette and asked to lie/stand still whilst the X-ray is taken (less than a second). You may be asked to follow some breathing instructions.
Medscan Double Bay uses the latest digital x-ray equipment providing superior image quality and a lower radiation dose than standard X-ray units.
