Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

  1. What if I'm not covered under Medicare?

    You will be billed as a private patient in which case you will have to pay either by cash or credit card.
  2. If I have Medicare eligibility would I still have any out of pocket expenses?

    If you have Medicare eligibility for the scan performed you will have NO out of pocket expenses as it will be wholly covered by Medicare.
  3. How long will a typical scan/injection take?

    Depending on the type of scan or injection, typically X-Ray's will take approximately 10 to 20 minutes, Ultrasounds 20 to 45 minutes, and CT scans 15 to 30 minutes. Please bear in mind that these estimates may vary based on the complexities of the study.
  4. How long do I have to wait to obtain the results to my scan?

    Urgent scans are reported immediately whereas all other scans are reported by the end of the day. Reports will usually be available to your doctor by the end of the day or on the next working day.
  5. Can I use other request forms instead of MRC's at your practice?

    YES! My Radiology Centre accepts request forms from all other practices.
  6. I don't have a request form but I feel like I require a scan. What do I do?

    Speak to your general practitioner/specialist/other allied health practitioners and they will provide you with a request form for the appropriate scan if deemed necessary. My Radiology Centre will not perform any studies/scans without request forms.

  7. What do I need to do before a scan?

    Refer to the Patients Preparation page. (Please note X-Rays, OPG's and Bone Densitometry scans do not require any preparations)
  8. What is OPG?

    OPG also known as Orthopantomogram is a specialised panoramic dental X-ray of the upper and lower teeth and jaw typically requested by a Dentist.
  9. What is CT?

    Computed tomography (CT) is an advanced X-Ray scan that employs tomography created by computer processing to obtain high resolution images of various body parts rapidly. The image quality and detail obtained is superior to general X-Rays. Images can also be manipulated to obtain 3-Dimensional visualisation of the organ of interest.
