Workers Compensation related imaging

Westside Medical Imaging will work with you to:

  1. Organise pre-approvals (patients will need to have a claim number)
  2. Book any appointments, including Interventional Procedures
  3. Where fast turnarounds are required, organise quick, timely appointments
  4. Provide professional reports by our Specialist Radiologist.

Our medical imaging specialists have expertise in workers compensation injuries, covering a clinical and radiological diagnosis through to safely treating injuries or conditions with therapeutic injections under imaging guidance. Using some of the most advanced medical imaging equipment available, a diagnosis will be achieved promptly.

Diagnosis and treatment will be achieved promptly and most workers can return to work at an early stage. We also accommodate the Jobfit Program and Pre-Employment Scans.

CT Scan

Our CT scanner features the industry’s thinnest detector and collimator elements (0.5mm) and widest bore size (78cm) in Australia, to deliver high resolution images at genuine ultra low-doses (up to 82% reduction of radiation exposure).

CT Iodine Mapping (spectral imaging) increases the diagnostic information available for any routine multiphase body protocol by extracting the iodine density on each phase, without increasing radiation exposure.

Angiography

Angiography is used to check the health of your blood vessels and how blood flows through them. It can help to diagnose or investigate several problems affecting blood vessels. If detected, this could mean you’re at risk of having a stroke or heart attack, pulmonary emboli, renal infarction, or a diabetic foot.

Cardiac Imaging (CTCA)

Cardiac CT imaging including CT coronary angiography (CTCA), aortography, or triple vessel scan delineates your heart motion, vessel patency and structural abnormality of heart valves and walls. This advanced test allows your doctor to assess your heart beating and pumping blood, and can help them diagnose mild to severe heart disease followed by early therapeutic intervention.

X-Ray

The latest Shimadzu digital x-ray system provides our local community with high resolution imaging at a reduced radiation dose, enabling quick diagnoses of broken bones and joint pathology.

No bookings are required for X-Rays, walk-in appointments are welcomed.

Ultrasound

An ultrasound scan, also called sonography or diagnostic medical sonography, is an imaging method using high-frequency sound waves to produce images of structures within the body. The images can provide valuable information for diagnosing and treating a variety of diseases and conditions, yet is most commonly used on a pregnant woman to examine the fetus.

Obstetric Ultrasound

We provide innovative, high-resolution ultrasound technology to deliver superb image quality.

Capable of high-resolution 3D imaging, along with macro and micro vascular doppler imaging, our highly skilled sonographers are equipped to offer a professional service and deliver accurate results.

Breast Ultrasound

Ultrasound imaging of the breast uses sound waves to produce pictures of the internal structures of the breast. It is used to help diagnose breast lumps or other abnormalities found during a physical exam, or on a mammogram or CT and MRI of other parts. Ultrasound is safe, noninvasive, and does not use radiation.

Vascular Ultrasound

Vascular ultrasound is a non-invasive ultrasound scan of the vascular system performed by our highly trained vascular sonographer. Vascular ultrasound is specialised service which requires an appointment. 

  • Upper and lower extremity venous/veins doppler studies 
  • Upper and lower extremity arterial doppler studies
  • Carotid doppler 
  • Upper and lower extremity arterial/vein mapping (AVF Creation or surgery)
  • Renal arterial dopplers
  • Renal transplant dopplers 

Interventional Procedures

We offer a variety of procedures including image guided steroid, hyaluronate and PRP injections, biopsy and aspiration. Our practice aims to provide a minimally invasive procedure and second opinion consultation by highly experienced radiologists.

Image Guided Biopsy

An image-guided biopsy is a procedure done under ‘image guidance’ which removes a small sample of tissue or cells for examination under a microscope to see if cancer or other abnormalities are present. The type of imaging used for your biopsy will depend on the location of the abnormality and how it is best seen.

Discogram

A discogram is a type of CT guided diagnostic interventional procedure which is performed for the assessment of the severity of spinal discomfort which may be due to abnormalities with the intervertebral disc/s. The procedure aids with identifying whether your back pain is due to disc disruption and if this is the case, it allows your doctor to identify which disc level/s are involved and what treatment may be beneficial for your pain management.

Arthrogram

An arthrogram is a medical imaging procedure which aids with the diagnosis of subtle abnormalities in your joints. The most commonly targeted joints for an arthrogram include the shoulder, knee, hip, elbow and hand/wrist. A CT scanner is used to target the location for which the arthrogram will be performed. This procedure is commonly requested by your doctor prior to an MRI scan for them to visualise how contrast spreads around the joint space, which assists with the diagnosis and treatment of certain joint conditions which may be causing your ongoing pain/discomfort.  Often, an arthrogram is requested if other forms of medical imaging (e.g., X-ray, Ultrasound, MRI, CT) do not provide sufficient information to allow for an adequate diagnosis, treatment or management plan to be made.

Westside Medical Imaging are providing the first MRI scanner in Wetherill Park and surrounding suburbs. We offer variety of conventional and advanced MR imaging including Neuro, Angiography, Head & Neck, Spinal, Cardiac, Abdomen/pelvis, MSK, and Prostate examinations using the latest 1.5 Tesla scanner GE SIGNA™ Voyager.
