Types of Imaging at Envision

At Envision, we offer the most sought-after types of imaging for diagnostics and treatments. Our Wembley headquarters is the largest single-site radiology practice in Perth, with our Booragoon suites providing additional dental imaging services. We specialise in Musculoskeletal and Injury Management, Cardiothoracic, Lung, Dental and Prostate Imaging, delivered by our team of highly skilled doctors and radiographers.

In all our imaging services, we offer seamless electronic image delivery to reduce our carbon footprint and are proud to be the first fully carbon neutral medical imaging provider in Western Australia. Our state-of-the-art imaging equipment includes:

Ultra low radiation dose levels for every patient, every time

Cone Beam CT is a scan which allows 3D visualisation of the teeth, jaws and face. It is one of the more recent developments in dental imaging. It provides clinicians with much more information about these structures to help with optimal diagnosis and treatment or surgical planning. Envision has two of the leading Cone Beam CT scanners, the iCAT and Sirona Gallileos, at our Wembley and Booragoon rooms. We also have the only i-Cat Cone Beam scanner south of the river at our Booragoon practice. Both these machines are capable of ultra-low dose imaging, comparable to doses delivered in many common dental X-rays. More about Cone Beam
Our up-to date ultrasound technology in three examination rooms is operated by Envision Medical Imaging’s highly experienced sonographers, each with over ten years experience in ultrasound imaging. Our sonographers specialise in vascular, musculoskeletal, obstetrics (pregnancy), paediatrics and general ultrasound. More about Ultrasound
XRayAt Envision MI, we use the latest digital X-ray equipment that minimises radiation exposure with advanced engineering technology. This results in high resolution images of bones and tissues at a fraction on the conventional X-ray radiation dose, with online report delivery to your doctor or specialist.

MRI

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. More about MRI
At Envision, the use of a hybrid scanner allows fusion with low-dose CT, allowing assessment of both structural and functional information in one study, greatly increasing accuracy and reducing scan times. More about Nuclear Medicine

CT

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.

PET

PETPET (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. More about PET

OPG

Panoramic radiographs, more commonly known as OPGs (orthopantomograms), are a special panoramic picture of your jaws. OPGs can be used for a variety of purposes from impacted wisdom teeth, checking development of teeth in children and as general screening as part of your dental check-up. The Lateral Ceph and/or PA Cephs (or cepahlometry examination) are used for checking your facial bones and occlusion, often used in orthodontics. While many radiology practices are digital, all Envision OPG and Ceph machines use only direct capture sensor technology which are capable of producing some of the lowest radiation doses possible.
