What to Expect

The team at the Mercury Bay Community Radiology & Health Trust facility can x-ray your arms, legs, back and provide ultrasounds for the doctors right here in Whitianga.
Call our team to confirm referral details from your doctor, and to arrange your appointment time.  Please note that all scan's and x-rays require a request form, it is a legal requirement.

Our X-Ray Services
A Sonographer is available on Tuesday and Thursday mornings, and she rostered on site three weeks on and away the 4th week. Our X-Ray facility can assist with:
  • All pregnancy, musculoskeletal, abdomen, pelvis and DVT 
  • X-Ray arms, legs, back areas
  • Ultrasound - 
Receiving Your X-Ray Results
Results take up to 5 days for non-urgent  (although this is often quicker) and 1hr for urgent results. Mote the wait for an ultrasound is about 2 weeks. All the medical practices prefer if you wait to be contacted for your results unless they have told you otherwise.

Please note we cannot do steroid injections at the facility.

Information About The Referral Process
Referrals made to the District Health Board for public funding come to our team from the DHB after they have been approved by a Radiologist. This can take up to a week for x-rays and up to a month (or more) for ultrasound referrals. We prefer it if you wait for us to contact you when we receive your request form, it avoids confusion.

Not all ultrasound requests to the DHB will be done in Whitianga, some will be done in Thames Hospital or Waikato Hospital. This is to make sure the waiting list requirements for urgent and non urgent requests are met. Please note that as a result we cannot guarantee that your ultrasound will be outsourced to our facility in Whitianga. If you do not want to wait,  you can pay $200 and have it privately in Whitianga.

Images taken here are available for Referrers around Waikato, BOP and Auckland on the Hamilton Radiology Inteleviewer system. If you are seeing a specialist who has access to this system you do not need a CD of you images.
CD's are available for $25
