FAQ – X-ray


Dear Patients,

Below we have collected the most frequently asked questions about our ultrasound and X-ray examinations, as well as the operation and hospital regulations of our Radiological Center.

If you have further questions but have not found the answer, please contact our Customer Service at +36 1 700 4490, they will gladly answer all your questions.

There is no age limit in the case of X-ray. For a toddler or very young children, please indicate the age of the child at the time of recording the appointment. The success of the recording depends on the child’s cooperation.

In the case of X-ray recording, as the metal scatters the X-rays, we are asking our patients to take any jewelry (necklaces, earrings, piercings …) and other metal accessories off before the recordings or leave them at home. Our radiologist may also request the removal of certain garments. Please, help our colleagues’ work with your cooperation. In addition, the X-ray examination does not require any other preparation.

X-rays have a cell-destroying effect on the human body, although at low doses, the body’s defense and repair mechanisms are unlikely to allow cell alteration. Our qualified staff works with radiation protection standards.

Radiation hazardous X-rays should be performed so that the participants are given the least dose. We also want to reach that what we could achieve with the digital X-ray machine park. Radiation dose has been maximally reduced compared to conventional imaging systems.

Recording an X-ray is not recommended: during pregnancy, breast feeding, right after isotope testing, some days after a contrast substance testing, during radiotherapy.

Recording an X-ray is not recommended: during pregnancy and breast feeding. Of course, in a very urgent case, on the patient’s own responsibility, with the recommendation of the gynecologist, x-rays can be taken during pregnancy and lactation.

Because X-rays have a cell-harming effect on the human body, thus only a limited number of X-ray examinations may be repeated. The benefit of the activity should be greater than the disadvantages caused by the radiation. Consultation with a clinical specialist may help to ensure that the X-ray is informative about our complaint.

Do not have any unnecessary, duplicate recordings made, if available, please ask for a copy. Before taking a new X-ray recording, make sure that you inform the recording assistant, how many imaging diagnostic tests that are associated with radiation you have taken part in over the past year.
