General Radiology & X-Ray


Victory Radiologists offers a complete range of diagnostic and general radiology (x-ray) services.  We pride ourselves on offering our patients access to trained and qualified staff using the latest, state-of-the-art equipment. X-Ray procedures require a referral from your doctor. This procedure may also require pre-authorization from your medical aid and a co-payment may also apply.

What is an

X-Rays are the oldest and most frequently used form of medical imaging.  X-Rays are most commonly used to see bone fractures or joint problems but can also be used to check the heart, lungs and other various organs. Generally, two or more images may be taken. Images are created by passing a small amount of radiation through the body.  This energy is captured on a digital image receptor (or plate) which is then processed to enable the radiologist to view the images.

How It

  • We will start the examination by asking you a few questions about your condition and medical history. Please notify us immediately if there is any chance that you may be pregnant.
  • The images are then taken and these, together with the radiologists report will be placed into an envelope for you to take with you back to your referring doctor. The technologist will ensure the images taken are complete and accurate, before you leave the clinic; however please note, they do not interpret the images.
  • Through our software system, your doctor has immediate access to your images and the radiologists report as soon as they are completed. They will consult with you and explain the results at a follow-up appointment.
