X-rays use invisible electromagnetic energy beams to produce images of internal tissues, bones, and organs on film or digital media. Standard X-rays are performed for many reasons, including diagnosing tumors or bone injuries.

The unit also offers contrast radiography services. Contrast radiography study is a radiographic (X-ray) examination using radiopaque contrast to diagnose abnormalities such of the GI tract, fistula, HSG and so on.


The X-ray the unit houses four x-ray machines, two fixed and two portables, manned by two X-ray technicians. The unit provides routine X-ray services from 9 am to 3 pm on weekdays and 9 am to 1 pm on Saturday while emergency services are available 24×7.

In addition to providing the normal plain x-ray examinations, the unit also provided contrast radiography services such as HSG, barium swallow, meal, follow through, enema, fistulography, MCUG, ascending urethrography, loopography, etc.


The four x-ray machines as follows:

1. Allenger 500 mA X-ray Machine (Fixed)

2. Siemens 500 mA X-ray with Fluoroscopy (Fixed)

3. Siemens Multimobil 60mA X-ray machine (portable)

4. Allengers Lite DXR (Digital portable)
