About Us
About Us

Rural Medical Imaging is an independent locally owned medical imaging practice

We offer a comprehensive service of:

• plain X-Ray

• OPG

• CT

• Ultrasound.

All services are bulk billed through Medicare, DVA and Worker’s Comp.

Most X-rays & OPGs can be done on a walk in basis. (Ultrasound & CT need to be booked).

We operate an ultrasound outreach service to Tully, Mission Beach & Innisfail Nursing Home.


Patients who receive a service through RMI are given a copy of their films on a CD. Most referring practitioners prefer to look at the films via the CD on their computer; however for those referrers who still like to view the images on film we can print these off on laser film for viewing.
