High-Frequency X-Ray Technology & Procedures

A painless, non-invasive technique that delivers sharp images for accurate diagnosis of health issues.

What is a X-Ray?

Krishna Scans is equipped with Digital Radiography (DR) or Digital x-rays, a popular imaging technique preferred by most doctors. An X-ray is one of the most basic and widely used diagnostic procedures in the medical world. The procedure involves exposing a part of the patient's body to a minimal amount of ionizing radiation to obtain images of the internal structures. In Digital x-rays, the traditional photographic film is replaced by sensors that provide quick image availability and preview.

The other modalities in x-rays include direct and computed radiography, which provides high-resolution x-ray imaging. At Krishna Scans, we deliver crystal-clear x-ray images with accurate diagnostic reports.

Krishna Scans offers Digital X-rays that eliminate the cost of processing, with a higher dynamic range that delivers excellent quality images. Call us now to book your appointment for your x-ray procedure.

An X-ray is usually performed without specific instructions because it is quite basic and minimal in its requirements. Here are some basic dos and don'ts that you should follow.
  • Do not eat or drink anything for eight hours before the procedure if you are required to be on an empty stomach.
  • Remove all pieces of jewellery, watch, spectacles and other metal objects before taking an x-ray.
  • Sometimes, you may be asked to wear a gown, depending on the area being imaged.

1. Are radiations emitted by x-rays safe?
Early diagnosis is our top priority, and its benefit outweighs the risk of small doses of radiation. Our medical imaging technologists are well-trained in the "As Low As Reasonably Achievable" (ALARA) principle. This means that the diagnosis is achievable with the lowest radiation dosage.
2. How will you handle x-ray procedures for pregnant women?
X-rays are not recommended for pregnant women, as the radiation is harmful to the fetus. Therefore, we advise you to inform your referring doctor and our lab technologist to find an alternative test. However, if an x-ray is necessary, we shall use lead shielding to cover the abdomen and reduce the risk for the fetus.
3. How will an x-ray test be conducted?
Our medical imaging technologist will ask you to remove your jewellery and watches before the procedure commences. If not, they may appear on the images and confuse the diagnosis. Next, the patient will be made to lie down, stand, or sit between the machine and the special screen used for obtaining the image. The patient should keep still until the procedure is complete. Our radiographer will check the quality of the images and send them to the radiologist for further reporting. The procedure is completely painless and without any side effects.
4. How long does it take to get an x-ray?
Most x-ray procedures do not require more than ten or fifteen minutes.
5. Can I eat or drink before an x-ray?
Generally, you can eat and drink before an x-ray unless your doctor requires you to be on an empty stomach. You may consult your doctor and your centre before your x-ray appointment.
6. What are the benefits of having an x-ray?

An x-ray is the most painless and non-invasive method of diagnosing health problems. Here's a list of its benefits:

  • It is the best option to diagnose bone-related problems like fractures and dislocations.
  • It can clearly show any head injuries and intracranial bleeding that result due to accidents.
  • X-rays help doctors correctly insert stents, catheters, and other devices into the body to remove blood clots or treat tumours.
7. What are the major uses of x-rays?

Amongst the many uses, x-rays are primarily used to:

  • Identify fractures and joint dislocations.
  • Detect lung cancer, pneumonia, and heart ailments.
  • Make a detailed observation into the deeper areas of your teeth, gums, and jawbone.
8. What happens after an x-ray procedure?
Our radiologist will review your x-ray and make a report based on the findings. Your report will be available within a couple of hours of the procedure.
9. Can my relative accompany me to the x-ray appointment?
Yes, they may. However, will have to remain outside the x-ray room for safety reasons. If children require an x-ray, we shall provide lead gowns for the parents to wear during the procedure.
