An X-ray takes pictures of your bones to help your doctor provide the best treatment for you.
X-Ray Services for the ZSFG Community
Our Radiology Department is a very busy area of the hospital, providing general radiology and X-ray services to all campus facilities and outlying clinics. As a Level 1 Trauma Center, we’re open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, with:
- Staffing levels to meet San Francisco’s trauma needs
- 4 general X-ray rooms
- 4 trauma rooms (one dedicated specifically for pediatrics)
- Each room has a 360-tube capacity, which enables us to shoot X-rays quickly and effectively.
Our technologists are at the top of their game and considered some of the best nationally. We emphasize teamwork – from the clerks to the lab aides, techs, and UCSF doctors who all give the utmost of care to every patient.
As a Level 1 Trauma Center, trauma takes priority over stable patients so there may be delays. However, we do our best to accommodate everyone.
