After an accident which caused severe pain and damage to your knee you may have been required to have an x-ray to determine the extent of the damage and confirm a diagnosis. Did your knee injury need an x-ray because it was likely that you were going to need surgery? If you have needed medical treatment because of an accident which was caused by someone else’s negligence, Accident Advice Helpline would like to offer you free support and guidance regarding your options.
What does an x-ray involve?
If you need to have an x-ray, your doctor or a radiographer, someone who operates the x-ray machine, will advise you about the process. It will often involve you having to lie or stand still while radiation is passed through the affected area, in this case your knee, to take an image of the inside of your body.
An x-ray is often used to look at bones and joints and it only takes a few minutes to complete. You should tell the doctor if you are pregnant, suffering from an illness or are taking any medications before you have an x-ray. The radiation you are exposed to is minimal but if you have concerns you can discuss these with your doctor in more detail.
