At Spectrum Healthcare we utilise radiology films to provide evidence based diagnosis and treatment. Medical imaging is an effective way of determining the severity of injury. We refer to a number of Sydney’s most reputable radiologies including MMI at the new Macquarie University Hospital.
MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) scans are one of the most comprehensive scanning devices available. They enable the practitioner and radiologist to see in great detail all internal structures from soft-tissue to bone injuries. MRI films have a greater capability than x-ray, ultrasound and CT scan and often pick up abnormalities that these scans miss.
X-rays scans are frequently used to view bone structures inside the body. Films can assist to diagnose fractures and determine alignment.
X-rays are often used to view scoliosis and structural leg length differences. X-ray referrals from Spectrum Healthcare practitioners are bulk-billed through Medicare.
