If you are looking for Ultrasound or X-ray services in Auckland, be sure to check out the EastMed Radiology website – www.eastmedradiology.co.nz. Here at EastMed Radiology we offer a full range of Ultrasound and X-Ray examinations at reasonable prices. Although, if your injury is covered by ACC there will be no extra charge for you. Give us a call on (09) 585 0534 for more information or to make an appointment. We can normally see you straight away for an X-Ray and an Ultrasound can often be scheduled for the same or following day.
No preparation is required for a General X-Ray. Eating, drinking and medication does not affect the scan. Depending on the area of examination you may be asked to change into a hospital gown, because sometimes clothing contains metal or plastic bits that you can’t have on during the X-Ray.
Most of the Ultrasound examinations do not require preparation. However, some of them do. Be sure to give us call once you get a referral from your doctor to have the scan done and we will tell you how to prepare.
Even if you do have to prepare for an Ultrasound scan it is usually very easy. For example, you may be asked to fast for 4 to 6 hours prior if you are having an Abdominal scan done. Most people like to do those in the morning so that they just skip breakfast and then have something to eat after the examination. When preparing for an Abdominal scan it is ideal that you don’t eat or drink completely, however you may take your medication with a small amount of water if you need to.
For a Renal Tracts Ultrasound you may need to come in with a full bladder. All you have to do is drink about a litre of water one hour prior and then hold it until after the scan which usually takes no longer than 15-20 minutes.
Finding the best service at a reasonable price can be tricky. At EastMed Radiology we have very competitive prices which you can check out at www.eastmedradiology.co.nz. X-Ray prices vary between $85 and $125, depending on the area that needs to be X-Rayed. We also offer a $50 discount for children under 15 on all Ultrasound scans. The ACC covered injuries are free as well as most pregnancy scans. If you have medical insurance be sure to collect your receipt. Many health insurance companies either subsidize or fully cover the Radiology services.
