Meet Elisa

Chief Medical Imaging Technologist

Elisa is the Chief Medical Imaging Technologist and is based in Brisbane, Queensland.

Elisa grew up in Far North Queensland on a sugar cane farm and made the move to the ‘big smoke’ to further her healthcare career after I-MED offered her many appealing opportunities. She is passionate about rural medicine, so being able to work on the Heart of Australia (HOA) HEART 5 truck means a lot to her. Recently, she helped to open the new Caboolture Medical Hub site and is now Chief Tech there.

Elisa shares with us the low down on what it is like to work on HEART 5 and to better understand the technology behind the world’s first solar-operated, mobile medical imaging truck!

Tell us about the conception of the truck.

The concept of the Heart of Australia fleet of trucks was developed by cardiologist Dr Rolf Gomes. He wanted to deliver specialist medical services to regional and remote communities in Queensland.  Services offered across the fleet of HOA trucks include cardiology, respiratory neurology, gynaecology, and endocrinology.

Heart of Australia was recently commissioned by Resources Safety and Health Queensland to provide a mobile health service to help with early detection of mine dust lung disease. This is done through regular Coal Board medicals and ILO chest x-rays.

Originally, HEART 5 was intended to be a small, mobile x-ray unit, but it evolved into a high-tech, “one-stop shop” for health surveillance schemes in different industries.

What safety precautions/modifications were considered when making this truck?

The truck has all the normal safety features of an x-ray / CT room including lead-lined walls and doors to keep the radiographers and the rest of the staff safe.  All the staff members on board wear radiation badges, that are monitored quarterly, just like a regular clinic environment.

One major difference between our in-clinic CT machines and the truck CT, is that it must undergo a full engineering-level calibration every time it pulls up at a new stop. This is to ensure that none of the detectors have been damaged on the long and sometimes bumpy journey between our destinations.

How else has modern technology played its part in this project?

Applications training on both the CT and x-ray machine is completed remotely! That means that when a new team member starts, we get the Philips team to train them on the machine specifics via video chat. Philips has also developed online training tools, that give you a feel of what it is like to run the CT machine without being anywhere near it!

How is working on the HEART 5 truck different to a regular day in the clinic?

Well for starters your day generally starts well before 8/9am. When the truck is on a mine site, you can start x-raying around 6am to scan miners who are coming off the night shift before they head home.  You then head to the Miner’s Mess i.e. the Tea Room for breakfast. I was out on site in at a coal mine in Emerald and the food was amazing – anything you can think of you can have.

Once back on the truck we put a call out to the Shift Supervisors with the list team members who were booked in for the day. Then every 15 mins or so a miner would appear for an x-ray. We can see between 30-40 miners in a day and be on the truck for 12 hours. Which when you put that on paper it sounds exhausting but the different working environment and the conversations you have with the miners makes the days fly by.

When the truck is not on a mine site, it may just be parked up in a small rural town. These days look more like a normal clinic, you will have patients turning up at their set appointment times for their procedure.

What are the impacts of having a mobile medical service available to rural patients?

People who would have to travel over 300kms one way to see a cardiologist, can now jump on the truck. Patients who may have put off this type of treatment due to travel, cost or time limitations can now access this service, just like you would if you lived in a metropolitan area.

Comments from colleagues:

“Elisa understands what it means to be a leader and the role and responsibilities to uphold.”

“Elisa is innovative, consistently creating positive change”

“She always puts the team first and deserves some recognition for the time, effort, and value she adds to our region. We are very lucky to have her as our manager.”

Meet Angela Duncan

Senior Regional Manager

I began my journey with I-MED after being offered the opportunity to train in a modality not available at my previous workplace. Since then, I have worked at several locations, including regional Victoria, and sought to enhance my qualifications. I-MED has always provided me with opportunities to apply for roles that would further develop my knowledge base, resulting in me becoming a tutor radiographer for three years, followed by serving as Chief Medical Imaging Technologist. During this time, I completed my General and Vascular Diploma of Medical Ultrasonography, and later returned to full-time ultrasound.

After taking parental leave, I resumed working part-time, gradually increasing my hours until I became a Sonographer Supervisor. In 2015, I faced a significant challenge when I suffered a stroke. Despite this, I decided to pursue a post-graduate qualification in HR during my recovery to continuously challenge myself. In 2018, I became Ultrasound Co-ordinator of the North East region, and in late 2020, I became the first female metro Regional Manager in Melbourne.

I’m extremely fortunate that I-MED has provided me with multiple opportunities to advance my career across different focus areas. I have always felt supported throughout all stages of my personal and professional journey.

Meet Rajeshwari Kangle

Trainee Sonographer

I-MED offered me a comprehensive training and development program as a trainee Sonographer

I have been able to work with a diverse range of patients, including those from different cultural backgrounds and with varying medical conditions. I also have had the opportunity to work alongside other healthcare professionals to provide the best possible patient care. I-MED taught me how to work as part of a multidisciplinary team and develop my communication and interpersonal skills.

Under the guidance of my tutors, I will be able to finish my training and become a Diagnostic Medical Sonographer, opening up opportunities for career growth and leadership opportunities.

I-MED has a positive workplace culture that values employee well-being and work-life balance. As a trainee sonographer, I feel I work in a supportive and collaborative environment that promotes personal and professional growth. Overall, working as a trainee sonographer in I-MED has provided me with an excellent foundation for my career with opportunities for growth and development.

Meet Chrys Woodyard

Medical Typist Manager

When I joined I-MED in Armidale, NSW, I had no background in radiology or working in medicine. Using the skills I brought from my previous job, I became a Clinic Leader and managed both technical and administrative staff.

In 2015, I was given the opportunity to participate in a year-long management training program that provided business and financial training under senior management mentors. Additionally, I had the chance to work in another region and help recruit and train staff, as well as assist in establishing a Contact Centre. I also acted as the marketing representative for our region and was involved in the launch of our inaugural Customer Care program.

After several years of managing a dual role as Clinic Lead and NSW Typing Manager, I moved across full time to I-MED’s Corporate division to manage the medical typing teams for NSW, ACT, WA and other regional areas across our business. What I love most about working for I-MED is the encouragement to learn new things. This has allowed me to seek out new challenges and kept my job interesting.
