We Provide Private X-ray for sports injuries

An X-ray is often used in the early diagnosis and management of sports injuries, where doctor identify the issue is likely to be a bony structure. 

A common sports injury is a stress fracture, which often result from a recurring low velocity force. Stress fractures can easily be picked up on an X-ray and thus that would be our first point of referral if we suspect this injury.

How an X-ray works

The patient is positioned so that the part of the body being imaged is located between an X-ray source and an X-ray detector. An X-ray machine then sends a beam of radiation into the area that’s being examined. You can’t feel or see X-rays. The X-rays are then absorbed by different amounts by different tissues, depending on the density of the tissues they pass through. 

Preparations for an X-ray

You usually do not need to do anything special while preparing for a normal X-ray and are able to eat and drink as normal and can take the usual medications.

On the day of the X-ray, make sure you are wearing loose, comfortable clothing. Try to avoid wearing jewellery and metal attachments as these will need to be removed.  If you have any metal implants or shrapnel, tell your care team as these can prevent X-rays from passing through your body and disrupt the X-ray images collected.

Risks of an X-ray

An X-ray is painless and you are exposed to a low level of radiation and the X-ray lasts less than a second. The amount of radiation exposed to during the X-ray is the equivalent of between a few days and a few years of exposure to natural radiation from the environment. 

Being exposed to X-rays does carry the risk of causing cancer many years or decades later, but the risk is very small. If you are pregnant, tell your doctor as they may recommend a different test that does not use radiation.

At Fusion Radiology, we discuss any concerns you have and deliberate the benefits and risks before deciding whether to continue with the private X-ray we provide.
