What happens at your appointment?
After you have been referred for an examination you should contact the practice and organise a booking. Be sure to ask:
- Can the service be bulk billed?
- How much will it cost?
- Is preparation required for the examination?
Our experienced reception staff are here to make your appointment process easy and are happy to answer your questions.
Once your booking is made, simply turn up on the day and the specialist medical technicians will take you through the scheduled procedure. Once the procedure is completed a qualified Radiologist will interpret the images and issue a diagnostic report to your referring doctor.
How long will it take?
Depending upon which examination you have, the procedure could take anything from 15 minutes to a couple of hours. When you book your appointment, the reception staff will be able to confirm the length of time, as well as other important preparation information. You can check out approximate times and preparation details under the respective service listed above.
After Your Examination?
Most examinations allow you to leave immediately without restrictions. Check with the reception staff before you leave for any special instructions. Your results will either be sent to the referring doctor or can be collected from our Imaging Centre.
