At Hunter Radiology we know that most patients are nervous and worried about having a scan. We also understand that patients can be anxious about the results of their scans.
Our highly trained Ultrasound staff are here to help you through your examination. We are happy to explain the procedure and help you to feel comfortable every step of the way.
All of Hunter Radiology’s Sonographers have been trained to perform the best possible diagnostic test for you. Our sonographers are all registered on the Australian Sonography Accreditation Registrater (ASAR). To maintain accreditation all of our staff are participating in Continued Professional Development. Our Sonographers are encouraged to attend conferences, workshops and meeting to continue to improve their knowledge and skill.
At Hunter Radiology we also work hard to ensure that the results of your scan are sent back to your referring doctor promptly. We understand that most patients who have to have an Ultrasound Scan want to know the result and have their minds put at rest. Our Radiologist work hard every day to view your images and send a report back to your Doctor within 24 hours of your scan. Usually the reports can be back to your Doctor the same day. Our Radiologists also communicate urgent findings back to your referring Doctor verbally, if possible, so any urgent follow-up can be taken promptly.
Ultrasound Scans need an appointment and at Hunter Radiology we scan Monday to Friday from 8:00am until 5pm. We scan at both our Hunter St and our Glendale practices. Please call for an appointment and our clerical staff will give you any relevant preparation instructions needed.
At Hunter Radiology we scan patients for Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) but we do not specialise in other Veinous or Arterial Vascular Ultrasound. This type of examination is best performed at a specialist Vascular Ultrasound Centre. Hunter Radiology has a professional relationship with Vascular One Ultrasound at Kotara who we highly recommend. They are excellent providors of Vascular Ultrasound. Link to their website here
