Mobile X-ray


Launched in 2006, the Mobile X-ray was set up to provide convenient and accessible full body x-rays on the move. At 20-foot in length, the Mobile X-ray trailer is fully-equipped with state-of-the-art digital imaging equipment and operate on an entirely filmless platform. The Mobile X-ray also has provision for patients on wheelchair with an automatic lifting device.

No fasting or special preparation is required prior to the test.

For Female participants: 

  1. Please confirm that you are not pregnant or unlikely be pregnant.
  2. Wear a two-piece outfit, prefer blank white / black T-shirt.
  3. You will be asked to remove the bra in the changing rooms before the x-ray. 
  4. Please tie up your hair in a bun so that it doesn’t fall below your shoulders.

You will be guided to a changing room to change into an x-ray gown. All jewelry or metal objects will need to be removed to prevent interference with the x-ray results.

The radiographer will advise your lying position on the x-ray plate. You are required to maintain the position and stay still when the x-ray machine is activated. This is to ensure accuracy in results.

You may be required to wait for a while after the x-ray is performed as the radiographer will look through the scan to determine if more images are required.
