X-ray examinations require a referral from your physician.
Basic X-ray examinations are based on radiation and thus X-ray examinations must not be performed unless they are necessary. For example pain in the lower back is a common problem and usually X-ray examination is not necessary, unless the patient has some other specific symptoms or unless the pain has started suddenly as a result of an accident, for example. More information on back pain.
