Personal profile

Biography

As the Head of Cardiac Imaging at Peninsula Health, Dr Premaratne has overseen the rapid expansion and growth in Cardiac CT, Transthoracic echo, Transoesophageal echo, Stress echo, Nuclear Cardiology, Dobutamine echo and introduced Contrast echo. He has forged a close working relationship with the Department of Radiology which has led to numerous successful cooperative endeavours including the overhaul of the Echocardiography reporting platform. 

He is the Head of the Siemens Luminary Site CT Lab which has recently acquired the revolutionary Siemens Force. Peninsula Health is one of only two luminary sites in Australia and New Zealand for Siemens. As recognition of his efforts, he has been invited to join the Annual Scientific Meeting Committee of the Society of Cardiovascular Computed Tomography, the world organisation responsible for Cardiac CT.
