Do I have to be sober or not?2019-12-09T20:30:41+00:00

  • ultrasound of the abdominal organs
  • Contrast studies: stomach & intestine, kidneys (I.V.P.)

Is an X-ray safe?2019-12-08T16:49:15+00:00

Everywhere in the world we are exposed to “natural” radiation.
During an overseas flight, that exposure is significantly higher.

Medical x-rays, used to improve diagnosis, are used for:


  • classic x-rays

  • mammography

  • CT scan

No x-rays are used for ultrasound and NMR.
The radiologist, the X-ray techniques, but also the modern equipment, will ensure that you receive the lowest possible dose.
In patients with a high risk, namely pregnant women and young children, one will only use X-rays in very strictly defined cases.
Therefore: please report any pregnancy, or suspicion of pregnancy, to the radiologist.
Always report an existing allergy in planned contrast studies (IVP).

Do I receive immediately my results?2019-12-08T16:46:44+00:00
  • You will receive a card with a code number, which is necessary to view the images on-line via www.rxgent.be.
  • The results are sent electronically to the referring physician during the day after the examination.
