You should be able to get a copy on CD from either imaging (PACS) department, or from Health Records at the hospital. If your hospital has a website, try there first - it may have details on how you can do this. If not, i'd try calling radiology where you had the x ray done. You'll probably have to pay for it (I paid 9 for mine) and have to complete a disclaimer form, but hopefully once this is done you'll have your own copy to keep forever
I'm Sally, 31, and I have congenital kyphoscoliosis in association with Spina Bifida, Diastematomyelia and tethered cord. Surgery to detether spinal cord and remove bone spur at Addenbrooke's in 1984 aged 3. Developed 'pes cavus' and weakness in legs, various foot surgeries between '92 and '94. Decompression of spinal cord, hemivertebrectomy and fusion L2-L4 with instrumentation by Mr Crawford and Mr Laing (neurosurgeon) in 1998 aged 17. Had two stage anterior-posterior T10 to pelvis fusion surgery on 27th February 2012 at NNUH by Mr Crawford and Mr Lutchman. Fused well but now curving over top of fusion, so facing fusion extension up to T1. Trying a brace first in order to put off surgery til next year

Yes you can get copies but you have to pay and mine took about 40 days to come through so didnt get them when i needed them but at least ihave them. You dont have to pay if private.

I phoned the hospital where I had my xrays done and they put them all on a CD for me, and it cost 5. As Sally says, there is usually a section on most hospital websites which gives you the right contact no/email to contact for xrays etc.

My surgeon also emailed me my 3 post op xrays recently for free! So may be worth asking
