After 12 months work on the site, renovating and installing equipment, as well as countless hours of planning and prepping, South East Radiology has proudly opened its practice in Batemans Bay.
With the installation of highly-specialised equipment there was a great deal of building and electrical works to be done on the site, but all that work has now paid off.
Regional chief radiographer Alexandra Malcolm said there was a real need for the facility within the Batemans Bay area.
“There was a need for the community to be able to access a comprehensive diagnostic imaging practice, reducing the need for them to travel to access these services,” she said.
“South East Radiology strives to provide the best quality diagnostic imaging available to facilitate the most accurate diagnosis.”
South East Radiology is a non-corporate radiologist owned practice and has been providing quality radiology services in the South Coast region for over 30 years.
In Batemans Bay, South East Radiology will be offering a comprehensive service including digital X-ray, ultrasound, bone mineral density, and the first ever CT scanner in Batemans Bay.

“Having a CT available locally will give local GPs access to a more rapid assessment of their patient,” Mrs Malcolm said.
“The scanner uses low dose technology to ensure the lowest available dose is given to a patient.”
The comprehensive practice means patients are able to have a variety of diagnostic examinations all at one site, which is then reported on by local radiologist Dr Tim Campbell.
“Not only is this beneficial to the patient from a convenience perspective, but also from a consistency in evaluating their imaging,” Mrs Malcolm said.
South East Radiology and its representatives are accredited through the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Radiologists, which is a guarantee of quality and professionalism.
The new practice has already connected with the local artistic community and will continue to build ties with organisations and groups throughout the area.
“We have been extremely fortunate to be able to showcase some of our local talented photographers in the practice, with some awesome images of the local area,” Mrs Malcolm said.
“Thank you to South Coast Pix and Jack Knipler Photography for their stunning work.”
