Once we have received your request, one of our booking specialists will contact you during the working day to formalise the appointment and to discuss specific details and preparation for your scan. If you haven’t heard from us by the end of the day, please call us on (09) 520 9550 and follow the prompts for your specific scan (i.e. MRI, CT, PET CT, ultrasound, DEXA etc).
While we will try our best to accommodate your preferred date and time for your scan, it may not always be possible.
Please note: While you don’t need to make an appointment for a plain x-ray (i.e. Chest x-rays, x-rays of limbs, spine, pelvis etc), you are still required to bring a doctor’s referral with you for any x-ray examination.
Restrictions on 3rd trimester scans and 4D imaging.
Due to the high demand for obstetric scans at Astra Radiology, we have had to put some restrictions in place in order to maintain our usual high standards of service to our regular obstetric referrers and patients.
As such, we are only offering 3rd trimester scans to those patients who have had all their previous scans with us for this pregnancy. To be sure this scan is of optimal quality, we require patients to have had their anatomy (19-20 week) scan with us. Unfortunately, we do not have the capacity to take on any new patients in their 3rd trimester.
We apologise for these restrictions, but we are committed to giving the best obstetric service we can to our loyal specialists, midwives and patients.
