It’s an exciting time for men’s health with the announcement in this month’s Federal Budget that Prostate MRI will be covered by a Medicare rebate from 1 July 2018!

WMI and SAMI recognise the importance of a Medicare rebate for prostate scanning and as a result will “no gap” Prostate MRI from 1 July.

Wesley Medical Imaging (WMI) has long been a leader in prostate imaging. WMI was the first in Australia to introduce Prostate MRI and prostate cancer-specific PET scans (PSMA). Since commencement WMI (and more recently St Andrew’s Medical Imaging (SAMI)) have performed over 13,700 Prostate MRI’s. These numbers are significantly higher than any other centre in Australia (public or private). Our experience and time spent teaching advanced prostate imaging techniques has consequently built us an international reputation as a Centre of Excellence for Prostate Imaging.

Magnet Resonance Imaging provides more detailed images of the prostate gland than other tests such as CT scans or ultrasound. Prostate Magnetic Resonance Imaging could furthermore alleviate the need for a prostate biopsy in most men. Men requiring this test will need a specialist Urologist referral to be eligible for the rebate.
