About us

Medical fellowship programs

Many of our radiologists have travelled globally to undertake specialty training and have been able to bring this expertise to benefit their patients and medical community locally. This expertise is coupled with the largest access to hospital-based radiology in Queensland, with extensive exposure to specialist referred studies across all modalities including CT, MRI, ultrasound and interventional procedures.
