QEHC employs digital x-ray technology to deliver accurate and timely evaluations, ensuring that our patients receive the highest standard of care. Our entire imaging department is officially accredited through Accreditation Canada. We are able to offer faster service, shorter wait times and the highest quality digital images.
An x-ray is a quick, painless exam that produces images of the body. It helps detect medical conditions in the head, spine, chest, abdomen and bones.
During an x-ray, a small amount of radiation passes through the body, but the exposure is very limited, so the risk of damage is extremely low.
The Radiology Clinic at QEHC is equipped with a computerized digital image management system known as a Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS). This technology enables radiologists to view, store, display, and distribute images wherever they are needed, even off site. PACS provides clear, sharp image resolution and its flexibility promotes faster turnaround time for interpretation and reporting. The system also is cost effective since no film is required.

There is no specific preparation for an x-ray, but you may be asked to change into a gown or remove clothing or jewelry in the area to be examined. Please let your doctor and x-ray specialist know if you may be pregnant.
