X-ray

Image for the X-ray program in medical imaging

X-rays are a form of ionizing electromagnetic radiation. Electromagnetic radiation exists on a scale, with the lower powered energy at the bottom: microwave, radio waves, visible light etc. Higher powered energy in this same spectrum includes X-rays, gamma rays and particulate radiation (alpha and beta waves that are used in nuclear medicine).

Our department performs a number of different examinations. Please learn more about the specific examination you are having. We have provided details on the exam as well as information on what to expect on your visit to our department.

Our general radiography team includes technologists, clerical staff, porters and radiologists.
