Digital x-ray is a safer and more efficient method of producing diagnostic images, than traditional x-ray. At St Vincent’s Clinic Medical Imaging we use the latest technology and the best techniques to minimise radiation dose.


  • No booking is required.
  • Please advise us if you are, or may be pregnant.
  • Remember to bring your referral, Medicare and Pension/Health Care cards and any previous imaging relating to the region being scanned. If you do not have films, please advise us of the name of your previous imaging provider, so that we may attempt to access them electronically.
  • You are not required to bring previous imaging if it has been performed at St Vincent’s Clinic Medical Imaging & Nuclear Medicine.

Your Results

When you first register with us, you will be invited to access SVCMI Patient, our patient app that enables our patients to securely access their images and reports.

See here for more information.

At the completion of your examination, you do not need to wait for images. You will receive the images into your SVCMI Patient app, approximately one hour after your scan is completed, and the report 4-6 days later. Your referring doctor will receive your results as soon as the report is finalised by our radiologist.

We recommend that you always return to your referring physician to discuss your results.

To download the app, go to your app store and select SVCMI Patient.

What to Expect

You may be asked to change into a gown and remove jewellery, as some objects can obstruct the area of interest.

Depending on which area you are having examined, you may be asked to lie on a table, sit or stand. You must keep still for a short period of time, and may be given breathing instructions.

Although most x-ray examinations will be completed in under 15 minutes, we recommend that you allow an hour for your visit to us.
