General X-Ray

Broadway Radiology has been providing an outstanding imaging service to the manawatu and horowhenua communities for over 20 years

X-rays are the fastest and easiest way to image the internal structures of the body, especially bone.  


The X-ray service is a ‘walk in’ service, no appointment is necessary. An appointment is required at our Feilding and Horowheuna practices.

Please ensure you have your referral form with you. If you have a Community Services Card, please bring this along also.


  • There is no preparation needed for an x-ray examination. We do ask that you call and tell us if you need any special assistance before, or during your time with us. (e.g. if you need a wheelchair to get from your vehicle or if you use a hoist at home.)



  • Broadway Radiology is a teaching institution. If a student is present you will be informed. Please tell us if you are not comfortable with them being a part of your examination.
  • You may be asked to remove some of your clothing, jewellery, dentures, glasses or any other metal objects. Gowns are provided for you to put on if necessary. We recommend that you keep your valuables with you at all times.
  • The x-ray itself cannot be felt, but moving into the correct positions for your x-rays may cause discomfort if you have an injury or are already in pain.



  • The x-ray is reported by one of our onsite Radiologists. The report will then be sent to your referring health professional who can discuss your results with you. 
  • The Radiographer is responsible for performing the x-ray. They are not qualified to provide interpretation. If you wish to clarify your result, please either contact your referring doctor or call us here at Broadway where a Radiologist can assist you.

Ladies - If you are pregnant, or think you might be, please tell a member of staff before you have your X-ray. The Radiographer can then talk to you about the issues surrounding radiation and pregnancy.


For any questions you may have before or after your examination, please Contact Us.
