The equipment used at Melbourne Radiology Clinic is registered with the Environmental Protection Authority and complies with the Radiation Control Act (1990). Our equipment is modern and undergoes regular servicing. All of our practices and protocols are continually reviewed under our Quality Assurance program and are designed to minimise the dose of radiation delivered to you without compromising image quality.
All our staff are appropriately qualified and possess the necessary training to operate equipment that emits radiation. If you are at all concerned, please discuss this with your doctor, our staff or radiologist. It may be that a different test, that does not use radiation is available as an alternative, though please be aware that the alternative type of scan could be more expensive or not as accurate as the originally requested test.
