Coquitlam X-Ray Clinic - MedRay Imaging

In Digital Radiography the x-ray picture is recorded and stored on a computer rather than on an x-ray film. X-ray procedures are performed in the same manner as before, we’ve just removed the film and replaced it with a digital sensor. X-rays are routinely used to examine the chest, spine, limbs or abdomen.

Benefits of digital radiography compared to traditional x-ray examinations:

  • Excellent image quality
  • Fewer repeated x-rays
  • Less radiation
  • Easier storage and transfer of images to your doctors
  • Multiple copies can be made and sent if necessary, with no risk of the original exam being lost or damaged
  • Less harmful to the environment- toxic chemicals used to manufacture and develop x-ray film are no longer needed

All x-ray procedures require a referral from a doctor with a completed requisition.

You do not have to book an appointment for x-ray examinations, they are done on a "first come, first served" basis. Bring your completed requisition and BC Care Card with you at the time of the exam.
