View ADIA updates on the 2014-15 Federal Budget including the newly released 'Safeguarding Patients - A Transition Plan for Diagnostic Imaging: From bulk billing to co-payments'

Diagnostic imaging plays a vital role in the Australian health system, helping to diagnose, treat and monitor an extensive range of illnesses and conditions – from a broken bone to guiding brain surgery. Its importance in modern medicine is reflected in the fact that every year some 20 million diagnostic imaging procedures are conducted in Australia, which has a population of only 23 million people.

ADIA, the Australian Diagnostic Imaging Association, represents the majority of private imaging practices in Australia and works constantly to ensure diagnostic imaging remains accessible, affordable and safe. ADIA members range from large multi-site businesses through to independent regional practices. Working on their behalf, ADIA regularly consults with government and other appropriate bodies on matters relating to the funding and delivery of radiology services.

Private imaging practices currently provide the majority of Medicare funded diagnostic imaging services in Australia, including X-rays, CT scans, ultrasound, MRIs, nuclear medicine and more. The remaining services are conducted in public hospitals.
