If you have a X-ray, you will be asked to lie on a table or stand against a surface so that the part of your body being X-rayed is between the X-ray tube and the photographic plate.
An X-ray is usually carried out by a radiographer, a healthcare professional who specialises in using imaging technology, such as X-rays and ultrasound scanners.
You can find out more about x-ray tests, how they are performed, their function and the risks by visiting the NHS Choices website.
Your GP may give you an x-ray card to take with you and for you to organise a suitable/convenient time. The nearest X-ray Department is Ayrshire Central Hospital , please phone 01294 322006 between 9 -12am and 2-4pm .
