This week marks the beginning of a four part series in association with Perth Radiological Clinic on the indications and interpretation of the Medicare rebatable MRI scans a GP can request. These are excellent reference sources for GPs particularly given the fantastic access we now have to MRI images, through modern software. First up is MRI Brain, for which the medicare rebatable indications are:
- Unexplained Chronic Headache with suspected intracranial pathology
- Unexplained Seizures
Dr Jolandi Van Heerden, a consultant neuroradiologist with three-years of sub-speciality neuroradiology fellowship training at the Neurological Interventional & Imaging Service of Western Australia and at The Royal Melbourne Hospital. She has put together an excellent presentation with images and explanations that can assist GPs to identify abnormalities highlighted in the radiological reports we receive.
