Size of our network

Map of Australia

With more than 240 clinics across metropolitan, rural and regional Australia, I-MED is the largest medical imaging network in the country. We are strengthened by our diverse spread of sub-specialty radiologists, and where possible can use this to deliver vital skills to each corner of the network remotely. Locally, our clinics are tailored to meet the needs of the surrounding community and can work within a smaller network of local clinics to service the needs of many. Find a clinic here

How you can refer to I-MED

We know our referrers look for the most convenient and efficient ways to refer their patients for radiology services. I-MED offers a variety of referral methods, including: 

Electronic referrals (e-Referrals)  

e-Referrals are a complete digital solution that will support any contactless or virtual services you are providing and enable you to streamline your medical imaging requests. They have also proven to speed up the booking process, prompting patients to book their appointments 4 times faster. Head here to learn more and set up e-Referrals in your practice. I-MED supports the integration of this system in both Medical Director and Best Practice software.  

Image request RTF templates   

Use I-MED Radiology referral templates if you like to complete your I-MED image request while working within your practice management software. Simply download the appropriate rich text file (RTF) template file and save it to your PMS.  

Order hard-copy referral pads 

If you prefer to use hard-copy referral pads, simply complete the order form on our website under your relevant state/territory. Once ready, they will be sent to your nominated address. 

Editable PDF referrals  

We also have several editable PDF referrals for you to save to your desktop to enable quick and easy image requests. These PDFs may also be useful when you are away from your practice management software or internet connection.
