As of 1 November 2012, six new GP magnetic resonance imaging requesting items for children under the age of 16 years will commence. This enables GPs to refer paediatrics patients (under 16) for an MRI examination to Melbourne Radiology Clinic.

At Melbourne Radiology Clinic, GP eligible paediatric MRI requests will be bulk billed.
