X-rays

X-rays are 2D images of your internal body structures, organs and bones. We use x-rays to diagnose and treat medical conditions and injuries.

X-rays are done by our experienced nursing staff and reviewed electronically by radiologists at Redcliffe Hospital.

Our services

We provide x-ray examinations for:

  • fractures
  • dislocations
  • bone and joint conditions
  • chest and abdomen conditions.

Are x-rays harmful?

The amount of radiation you will receive will be dependent upon the specific examination your doctor has requested for you. If you have any concerns regarding this examination, you should discuss it further with your doctor as the benefits should outweigh the risks to you.

How to access this service

To access this service, your GP or medical practitioner will contact Kilcoy Hospital to arrange a suitable time with a nurse credentialed x-ray operator. Bookings are essential.

If you are able to have an x-ray immediately you will be directed to Kilcoy Hospital Emergency Department. If there is a waiting period, your doctor will notify you of a suitable time to go to hospital.
