Queensland X-Ray's local causes
Queensland X-Ray sponsors a range of health and science causes and events, and our staff are great supporters of a good cause!
- Chicks in Pink Annual Morning Tea
- Movember for Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia and Beyond Blue.
Queensland X-Ray donated $10,000 in 2011 to the Premier’s Flood Fund, which goes towards helping people affected by the Queensland floods and Tropical Cyclone Yasi. The Premier’s Flood Fund remains open for donations until the end of 2011.
Queensland X-Ray is a Gold Supporter of the Australian Age of Dinosaurs Museum, donating equipment and time equivalent to $20,000-$50,000. Queensland X-Ray at the Mater Private Hospital, Mackay, have provided access to CT scanning equipment, which creates 3D digital x-ray files that allow the Australian Age of Dinosaurs to see and research fossil bones including otherwise inaccessible internal structures. You can read about CT scans on ‘Banjo’ here.
- Tour de Cure for the Children’s Cancer Institute Australia
2011 saw a team of intrepid Queensland X-Ray staff cycling from Townsville to Cairns to raise money for the Children's Cancer Institute Australia. Queensland X-Ray donated to the team’s Tour de Cure.
Queensland X-Ray is an annual sponsor of the Special Children’s Christmas Party which provides an unforgettable event to over 3000 disabled and disadvantaged children.
We support the Brainchild Foundation’s Annual Gala Ball. The Foundation raises funds to support and assist children diagnosed with brain and spinal cord tumours.
Queensland X-Ray sponsors St Vincent's Brisbane Charity Race Day, which is the major fundraising event for the St Vincent’s Brisbane Hospital. The funds raised in 2010 provided pressure relief mattresses and other vital equipment.
- University Student Research
Queensland X-Ray supports University researchers who
require access to x-ray and imaging machines. Most recently, we assisted
a University of Queensland Marine Geology student with x-raying coral
from Brisbane’s Moreton Bay region.
Queensland X-Ray, Fuji and Intellirad have provided the Currumbin Wildlife
Hospital with a state of the art diagnostic imaging system. The system is
similar to the version we use in our practices. Intellirad provided the Hospital with a PACS system. Having the images web-utilised means referrers such as Australia
Zoo and local vets can view images of their patients on-line, just like any
medical referrer. Currumbin Wildlife Hospital is one of the busiest in the world and sees
over 6000 patients a year pass through its doors. This new equipment will
continue to be supported by Queensland X-Ray, Intellirad and Fuji for the foreseeable
Queensland X-Ray has sponsored the annual AMAQ Charity Golf Day for 11 years running, and also makes annual contributions to this important charity.
