SameDayDoctor has ready access through partner clinics to a wide range of imaging facilities meaning we can usually arrange same day X rays, ultrasounds and MRI scans in locations very close to our central London clinic, with rapid reporting and provision of images on CD so they can be reviewed by any specialist. We have live image viewing facilities so that our clinicians can see the X-ray or scan within minutes of its being carried out. Reports can be emailed to the patient, their GP and any specialist upon request.
SameDayDoctor ensures fast access to all imaging and investigations such as:
- Ultrasound scans
- MRI scans
- CT scans
- Bone density
- Doppler tests
- Cardiology tests
We can arrange any of these tests & scans quickly and at your convenience. If you have private health insurance then this may cover the cost of your tests, but even without health insurance, you can choose to pay to have X rays or scans carried out privately through ‘self-pay’, in order to get the tests you need quickly and at a convenient time.
If the test has already been recommended by a GP or the type of investigation you need is straightforward, then we may be able to arrange this following a phone or email consultation, but this is not guaranteed and the GP or nurse practitioner may advise that you do need to be seen first.
If a GP has not already recommended this investigation then you will almost certainly need to come to a SameDayDoctor clinic for assessment by one of our experienced private GPs or nurse practitioners to ensure the most appropriate test is carried out. Book an appointment today with one of our private GPs at your nearest clinic today for professional, expert help.
You will need to let us know whether you wish to have the test in London or elsewhere in the UK. All prices of X rays and scans are dependent on the location and imaging centre.
What is an X-ray?
X-rays are an imaging technique using radiation to look at internal organs principally bones, joints and the chest and can be used to detect a range of medical conditions including fractures, joint issues, chest disease, pneumonia, and more.
How does X-ray work?
Images of electromagnetic radiation are projected on to an x-ray film which can then be viewed by a radiologist
Are there any risks associated with X-rays?
X-rays involve exposure to radiation and therefore need to be used with caution. You won’t be able to see or feel the x-ray.
What is the cost of an X-ray?
The cost of an x-ray starts at around £100 per view. Some x-rays require two or three views to adequately assess the condition
Do you need a referral to get an X-ray?
Yes, the x-ray clinic will only carry out the x-ray with a GP referral.
How long does an X-ray take?
The procedure of taking an x-ray is only a few minutes. With waiting and changing times the appointment usually lasts about 20 minutes.
