Further Information

Scan Procedure

The X-ray Sternoclavicular Joint procedure involves passing a controlled amount of X-ray radiation through the joint, which is then captured on a digital detector or film. The resulting images provide a detailed view of the joint's structure and any abnormalities.

Preparation for the Scan

No specific preparation is required for an X-ray Sternoclavicular Joint. However, you should inform the radiographer if you are pregnant or suspect you might be, as X-rays can be harmful to the developing foetus.

What to Expect on the Day

During the procedure, you will be asked to remove any jewellery or clothing that may interfere with the X-ray. You will then be positioned so that the X-ray machine can capture images of the sternoclavicular joint. The procedure is painless and typically takes only a few minutes.

After the Scan

There are no specific post-scan instructions for an X-ray Sternoclavicular Joint. You can resume your normal activities immediately after the scan. The results will be analysed by a radiologist, and a report will be sent to your referring doctor, who will discuss the findings with you.

Alternative Imaging Options

Alternative imaging options for evaluating the sternoclavicular joint include magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and computed tomography (CT) scans. The choice of imaging modality depends on the symptoms, clinical findings, and the consultant's decision.
