X-ray

X-rays are a type of radiation. They are similar to light, except that they have a much higher frequency, which makes them invisible to the naked eye.  Due to their high frequency, X-rays can pass through the human body making them ideal for looking inside the body.

Having an X-ray should not take more than 10 minutes.

Plain X-rays are the simplest form of imaging and for the majority of you, there is no preparation required. If any preparation is required, a member of staff will contact you with specific instructions.

X-rays can be done at any time without making an appointment and you can do this just before your consultation or straight afterwards at The Spine Surgery London.

These investigations are done predominantly at 30 Devonshire Street at The Spine Surgery London or at The Princess Grace Hospital, 42-52 Nottingham Place.
