Company News

Imaging Associates Wagga Wagga is excited to announce the arrival of our new state-of-the-art Philips Elition 3 Tesla MRI. This is the fourth MRI for the city of Wagga Wagga and the second at Imaging Associates Wagga Wagga.

MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) is a non-invasive medical test that clinicians use to diagnose and treat certain conditions. MRI doesn’t use ionising radiation (X-Rays) and provides detailed information on structures that may not be seen as well on X-Ray, Ultrasound, or CT. 

MRI is recognised as being the gold standard in medical imaging.

The increased capacity supplied by our additional MRI will see waiting periods reduced, providing the community of Wagga Wagga with faster access to our high-quality services.

Currently, we are able to offer same day/next day MRI appointments to our local referring practitioners and their patients.

Imaging Associates endeavours to increase accessibility to our high-quality imaging services and procedures.

Our new MRI machine is fully accredited with a Medicare license, enabling Medicare rebates on eligible scans. All non-Medicare eligible examinations will continue to incur an out-of-pocket expense.

MRI appointments require a referral from a medical practitioner and Imaging Associates can accept all referrals from a referring doctor.

We look forward to offering improved access and affordability to our services at Imaging Associates Wagga Wagga.
