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.

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 future.

Queensland X-Ray has sponsored the annual AMAQ Charity Golf Day for 11 years running, and also makes annual contributions to this important charity.
