Police are not really the right people to talk to about this sort of stuff. If you walk into a station and talk to a cop behind the counter, he will probably give you a funny look and tell you that they are closing early today.
Are you dealing through a public hospital or private insurance?

Yes shoeverine i'm aware of the response i'm likely to get,however theft and fraud are both criminal matters are they not.? I understand that it's unlikely the police would investigate but the fact is i'm 100% sure that the scans have been stolen rather than lost.The surgeon ivolved had both the opportunity and inclination to withhold them.The health care commissioner doesn't deal with theft-that's why i'm asking for advice.
Transport accident.Operations and treatment at both public and private hospitals.
You are right in that these sort of things are offences. The Police dont really deal with them first hand. It is better brought to the attention of which ever dept deals with corruption and frauds etc.
In QLD for instance, it may be the cmc. There are also different Ombudsman Services for health insurances and many other agencies. These agencies, have direct contact with the Police depts who deal specifically with corporate frauds. These Police depts, then investiate and lay charges, according to the directions given to them.

You are in Victoria, I think the first point of call is the Health Services Commissioner, send a copy of your complaint to the Commonwealth department of health as they may be picking up the bill.
