                                                  We have recently updated patients medical records with the diagnosis of

                                                  CKD (chronic kidney disease) based on the last kidney function blood test

                                                  if it showed evidence of CKD.

                                                  However there is NO CAUSE FOR CONCERN as all these blood results have

                                                  already been received by doctors and appropriate management action 

                                                  taken.

X-Ray

doctor examining an x-rayAn X-ray is a widely used diagnostic test to examine the inside of the body. X-rays are a very effective way of detecting problems with bones, such as fractures. They can also often identify problems with soft tissue, such as pneumonia or breast cancer.

If you have a X-ray, you will be asked to lie on a table or stand against a surface so that the part of your body being X-rayed is between the X-ray tube and the photographic plate.

An X-ray is usually carried out by a radiographer, a healthcare professional who specialises in using imaging technology, such as X-rays and ultrasound scanners.

You can find out more about x-ray tests, how they are performed, their function and the risks by visiting the NHS website.
