Radiology Services

On-site radiology services are provided by Breast Imaging Victoria. We can organise 3D Mammograms, Ultrasounds and biopsy procedures on site . This enables the Breast Specialist to review imaging and be involved in any procedures that may be needed.

This results in the Radiologist and Breast Specialist coming together to give a full recommendation on follow up and further testing during your visit.

Our Team

Our Team

We are available by consultation to confidentially discuss your concerns and to guide you appropriately.

We see a wide variety of patients with breast problems and are happy to develop care plans for peace of mind, treatment, surveillance and screening. This will sometimes involve having another specialist involved in your care plan.

At MBU we have specialists who attend our clinic for consultations and also specialists we refer to nearby for additional support and guidance. These include:

  • Medical Oncologists​
  • ​​Radiation Oncologists
  • Plastic & Reconstructive Surgeons
  • Radiologists
  • Psychologists

Our approach is simple. We aim to create a nurturing
environment where the patient is our priority.
