MRI

 

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is an advanced and painless scan that allows doctors to look at the soft tissues of the body without the use of X-Rays.

It is a non-invasive imaging modality which uses a very strong magnet, radiofrequency waves and a powerful computer to produce detailed cross-sectional images inside the body. It is especially helpful to collect pictures of soft tissue, such as organs and muscles, that don’t show up on X-ray examinations.

Our MRI examinations cover the head, neck, the full spine and the entire body, as well as the limbs. We use the state-of-the-art Siemens Magnetom MRI scanner which produces the highest possible imaging quality.

MRI procedures referred by your GP may be bulk billed for a specific area and indication.

Some of our bulk billed procedures cover shoulder, wrist, elbow and hip arthrograms from a Specialist or GP referral.

There is also no charge for MRI's requested by your specialist for WorkCover (Prior approval required) or DVA (Gold card or White card specific - prior approval may be required).
