Patients can be referred directly by their own GP or specialist and most services are bulk billed (including some GP referred MRI). Children (under the age of 16) and obstetrics cases can only be seen at our department in Sandringham Hospital. Scheduled appointments are available. Reports are transmitted electronically over Healthlink and faxed to the referring doctor. Images are also available through Inteleviewer.
Clinical service overview
Alfred Health has one of the most experienced and advanced Radiology departments in the country, receiving multiple accreditation awards including full DIAS (Diagnostic Imaging Accreditation Scheme) compliance, a tribute to our community of diligent and dynamic staff, devoted to caring for patients’ needs. As a part of this commitment we also employ three dedicated radiation safety scientists to ensure that our dose reduction and imaging techniques are in line with international best practices.
Our dedication to clinical and process excellence is matched by our ongoing commitment to education and research. The Alfred Radiology Research unit (the first of its kind in Australia) conducts a broad range of internally-initiated, collaborative and industry research improving patient care through evidence based medicine. Our education programs are again fully accredited and facilitate radiologist and radiographer training in many specialties and sub-specialties.
