Bridge Road Imaging previously known as Richmond Diagnostic Imaging opened in July 2015.
Bridge Road Imaging is part of Australia’s largest specialist medical imaging group, Healthcare Imaging Services which performs over 2.2 million scans each year.
Our experience, facilities and equipment are the most advanced, but it’s the people behind the scans that make all the difference.
People like Dr Carl Blecher, Associate Professor Richard O’Sullivan, Dr Zita Ballok and Dr Rohan White, the principal radiologists at Bridge Road Imaging.
They are joined by one of Australia’s best imaging teams – and some of the most advanced scanning technology in the business.

At Bridge Road Imaging, we have two 3T MRI scanners with a 70cm bore (width of tunnel). This is the largest available bore size available.
3T is the highest field strength MRI in clinical practise in the world. 3T refers to the strength or power of the magnet inside the machine. The higher the field strength, the more signal is produced. This matched to our ultra-high density coils (our head coil has 60 channels) allows us to acquire the highest resolution images in the shortest amount of time.
This directly improves the patient experience with less claustrophobia and the best quality images.
We also perform specialty MRI sequences including MR Spectroscopy and MR Perfusion, these are extremely useful in the diagnosis and response to treatment of brain tumours.
Bridge Road Imaging has the world’s best CT scanner– the Siemens FORCE.
The "Force" can perform CT coronary angiography scan with 0.2 mSv which is the same as a chest x-ray. It has an ultra low radiation dose and when contrast medium is required the dosage has fallen by up to 70% compare to earlier CT scanners.
This combined with The latest in mammography, Nuclear medicine and PET CT ensures this site caters for specialised imaging. For further details please look at the specific scan information,
