This was an unusually worrying. They couldn't figure out positioning my head suitably to capture the 360* degree X-Ray of my head. After aligning my head and resting my chin on apparatus, they instructed me to take a swallow ( my saliva or air?) and hold my tongue to roof of mouth. They took several X-Rays but apparently they did not come out right for them. Something to do with position of my tongue. Which by the way, I'd position if they told me when to start and when to let go. They then took me to another type of X-ray machine. This time, the apparatus did not accommodate my 6 feet height. So, they commanded me to sit on a stool with my knees wedged (hurtfully) to the wall !
The technician had difficulty in aligning the two ear cones on this apparatus into my ears ! This was to hold head in position/right alignment, I suppose.
I just hope they didn't over expose me to X-Rays ! I found some of the technicians rude and clumsy. The clinical staff on the whole patronizing My appointment was around 13:45 pm on 23/02/2016 All nurses, staff were friendly and efficient registration.
