Our aim is to provide high quality medical imaging with empathy, to the local community by ensuring highly trained and caring staff are available every step of the way.
Greenhills X-ray has been in operation since December 2007 with Greenhills Ultrasound commencing in March 2008. The two companies merged in October 2010. Since this time the practice has gone from strength to strength with a very strong referral base amongst local General Practitioners, Specialists, Dentists and Allied Health Professionals. We continue to be very appreciative of their support.
All of the technical staff at GXU have many years’ experience in their field. They are all university trained with additional Diplomas and Professional Memberships. They all undertake Continuing Professional Development (CPD) in order that their knowledge is at the forefront of new technologies and techniques. You can rest assured that your scan or X-ray will be performed by a highly skilled and experienced radiographer or sonographer.
Greenhills Xray and Ultrasound is supported by Pittwater Radiology Pty (PRP). All of our reporting is handled by their team of Radiologists and two times per week they attend GXU for dedicated musculoskeletal clinics.
