A: No x-rays are preformed at KOG. Health Care Imaging is located within the grounds of Knox Private Hospital and is in close proximity to KOG. X-rays, including CT scans, bone scans, ultrasound and MRI scans can be performed at Health Care Imaging.
At the consultation at KOG the surgeon may request the patient have an x-ray and this can usually be performed on the same day as the consultation. The patient may then be seen after the x-ray for review of the films.
Ultrasound, CT or MRI scans usually require an appointment and KOG staff can assist in arranging these appointments at the appropriate radiological practice. Once the date of radiological appointments is known a further appointment with the surgeon at KOG will be made to discuss the results of these tests.
