Oncology imaging and interventional oncology procedures are performed by our medical specialists to assist with cancer diagnosis, including evaluating the efficacy of oncology treatment plans. At Envision MI, we offer a range of modalities to offer the best diagnostic oncology support.
CT scans can be used to diagnose cancer and plan surgeries or radiation therapy treatments, as well as monitoring patient responses to cancer treatment. We use the latest low dose CT Scanner to minimise the radiation dose to patients. MRI is used to visualise internal structures of the body in high detail, with no radiation exposure. Ultrasound is a scan that uses high frequency sound waves to show internal body structures. CT , MRI and Ultrasound can also be used to guide interventional procedures, such as biopsies to ensure correct placement of needles with minimal intervention.
Nuclear Medicine plays an important role in cancer diagnosis. At Envision, we use a hybrid scanner to conduct nuclear medicine and low-dose CT scans at the same time. This allows our radiologists to assess both structural and functional information in one study, greatly increasing accuracy and reducing scan times.
Our new PET/CT facility offers powerful diagnostic examination which combines functional and structural information in one examination to help doctors visualise the function of tissues and organs and gain information on the position and increased activity of cancer cells.
At Envision Medical Imaging, our highly skilled medical imaging team includes experienced Radiologists and Nuclear Medicine physicians and technologists to ensure the best standard of diagnostic care for oncology patients.
Our practice is equipped with state-of-the-art digital equipment including 1.5T MRI, 3T MRI, The revolutionary Force multislice CT with cardiac capability, ultrasound, and the latest in filmless digital reporting and image archiving and distribution to ensure the highest level of diagnostic service for oncology patients.
PET (Positron Emission Tomography) is a Nuclear Medicine procedure in which the distribution of a small amount of a radioactive compound injected into the body is imaged at the same time a low dose CT scan is taken. Envision continues to be at the forefront of medical imaging innovation with the introduction of the new Siemens mCT Flow PET-CT. The Siemens mCT Flow PET/CT is the first of its kind to offer personalised imaging, resulting in reduced scan time, a lower radiation dose and a better patient experience. The dual technology of our Siemens PET/CT scanner, located in Envision’s purpose build facilities opened in 2017, allows for the most accurate anatomical localisation of any significant pathology. This assists specialists with the most accurate cancer diagnosis, staging, and measuring the effectiveness of treatments.

Envision is the only private practice with the new state of the art Siemens CT Somatom Force. Force mode scanning completes a study in less than a second, at even lower dose, providing better image quality. In addition, the protocols are personally prescribed by our radiologists to ensure extremely low levels of radiation, while maintaining optimal image quality. What remains the same is the high quality interpretation by specialists who are experts in their field. The low radiation that you receive from our multi-slice CT scans is comparable to many common dental X-ray series.
We choose Siemens CT scanners because they include control mechanisms that automatically adjust the radiation dose level to the patient’s anatomy, keeping dose to a minimum. It is similar to a highly sophisticated camera’s automatic exposure mode and delivers optimum low dose with high quality images.
More about CT
Envision has two high quality, modern wide-bore MRI scanners (1.5T & 3T). This ensures better images and a far more comfortable experience for patients than many other scanners in WA. Countless patients have experienced the positive difference we provide - our team of caring MRI technicians puts them at ease, even if they are anxious or have had a bad experience in the past. Most importantly, the excellent image quality allows for accurate diagnosis by our specialist MRI Radiologists.
