X-rays are a type of radiation that can pass through the body. They cannot be seen by the naked eye and you cannot feel them. As they pass through the body, their energy is absorbed at different rates by different tissues (bone, fat, air). A detector on the other side of the body picks up the x-rays after they have passed through the body and turns the data into an image.
At GibMed International Hospital we have the latest equipment which means our patients will receive low dose levels.
The GE Discovery XR656+ X-ray equipment provides:
- A digital detector with advanced technology for maximum image quality performance and dose efficiency.
- Advanced image optimization techniques that guarantee the maximum performance of the system.
- Helix advanced image processing that delivers extraordinary anatomical detail and consistent performance in X-ray, despite variations in patient size, exposure technique, collimation and metal implants.
- Bariatric table with a spacious tabletop.
