State of the Art Technology.
At Panorama Radiology Specialists, as an independent doctor-owned clinic, we uniquely understand the needs and expectations of our patients and referring clinicians, which is why we are committed to providing premium, personalised services using leading edge technology. Our team is committed to exploring new and innovative technologies that offer clinically proven benefits, pushing the boundaries of radiation dose minimisation for CT, EOS and X-Ray imaging and embracing emerging technologies such as Artificial Intelligence image enhancement.
Our state of the art 640-slice CT scanner is capable of scanning the entire heart in just 0.27 of a second and is equipped with AI Deep Learning technology to enable the clearest possible images inside the Coronary Arteries at dramatically reduced radiation doses, around 80% lower than conventional CT machines (or equivalent to 5 Chest X-Rays). This technology holds the potential to change the traditional clinical paradigm of Coronary Artery disease management, enabling early diagnosis and treatment of silent Coronary Artery disease, still the leading cause of death in adults worldwide.
Our 3T wide bore MRI scanner is industry-leading technology fitted with MRI CINEMA for in-scan audiovisual entertainment, noise reduction technology that significantly reduces obtrusive in-scan MRI noise, state of the art AI image enhancement that pushes the boundaries of visualising subtle anatomical structures such as tiny nerves and ligaments; and is enabled to perform specialised techniques such as MRI Discography (Spectroscopy) which aids localisation of chronic discogenic back pain; high definition Prostate mpMRI which enables early detection of small prostate cancers, and groundbreaking Diffusion Tensor Imaging and MRI Tractography which uniquely enables high definition mapping of neural pathways and disrupted muscle fibres in sports injuries.
Panorama Radiology Specialists’ team of highly trained technologists and sonographers have leading expertise across the full range of imaging services, and our friendly reception team strive to provide as comfortable and positive an experience as possible. We are always happy to answer any questions you may have about a procedure, billings, reports or our services.
We realise there are a myriad of medical imaging operators in the market, the majority of which are operated by large corporate providers. Many providers offer a wide variety of service quality, clinical experience and even qualifications – details of which are not always transparent to the client.
At Panorama we are committed to providing friendly, personalised care, leading sub-specialist experience, premium technology, and prompt, accurate results.
Our large-format Benowa clinic is conveniently located at 117 Ashmore Rd, Benowa in the heart of the medical precinct, just 2 minutes from Pindara Private Hospital. The clinic offers easy ground floor access and over 90 on-site car parks, and is located within the new Benowa Medical Hub complex behind AMart.
Panorama Radiology Specialists is owned and operated by experienced healthcare professionals who have proudly served our local Gold Coast community since 2004.
