Are X-ray examinations safe?

X-rays are a form of ionising radiation and are potentially dangerous.
However, the benefit of the X-ray examination is more important than the estimated risk. Doctors are specially trained to weigh the risks and benefits for each medical examination.

We work according to the ALARA principle: As Low As Reasonably Achievable. This means we minimise the radiation doses to keep any potential harm reasonably low.

X-ray doses in perspective
Annual radiation doses higher than 100 mSv are harmful. But you should know that:

  • A normal X-Ray examination is usually lower than 2 mSv
  • A CT scan of the abdomen (belly) delivers 5-10 mSv (sometimes slightly more)

We use state-of-the-art X-ray equipment:

  • Luminos DR X-ray table
  • Mammo DR Inspiration
  • Philips iU22 and Epiq9 ultrasound
  • Hologic 4500 bone densitometry
  • Digital OPG

Information about the delivered radiation doses is stored for any future reference.

How can I pay?

You can pay:

  • Cash
  • With Bancontact / Mister Cash

We do not accept credit cards.
