Australia Day acknowledges and celebrates the contribution all Australians make to our diverse nation. Here at Qscan we celebrate our contribution to the dynamic and ever advancing Radiology services. We continue to focus on providing exceptional diagnostic and interventional radiology with compassionate patient care. These healthcare objectives are achieved through our subspecialty trained Radiologists, the latest information technology, high quality medical imaging equipment and highly trained clinical and support staff.
Since opening our first clinic in 2007, we have become one of the largest radiology organisations in Queensland and one of the fastest growing in Australia. We are proudly continuing this growth within South-East Queensland, providing local patients and referrers a fast and convenient service. In the past 12 month, we have seen the opening of a number of comprehensive sites, including our Parkwood site on the Gold Coast, and our new site in Clayfield, Brisbane, which hosts the newest revolutionary Siemens Duel Source CT. This high-quality CT scanner has the ability to scan faster than a beating heart, create motion-free images of the heart and allows for soft tissue differentiation within the body.
In addition to our focus on our local comprehensive sites, we are also proud to introduce our new state-of-the-art PET-CT centres in North Lakes (Brisbane), Hobart (Tasmania) and our soon to open PET-CT Centre in Mackay, Queensland. These PET-CT facilities will help with earlier and more accurate detection and staging of tumours, assisting with treatment plans and reducing the need for unnecessary surgery. This latest technology will provide our referrers with unparalleled image quality while optimising patient safety and comfort.
Qscan continues to be an innovative Radiology company dedicated to excellence and compassionate patient care. We are grateful for the commitment, passion and dedication of our team, and the support of our referrers throughout the years, and hope this commitment is continued for the future.
