Computed Tomography (CT) Scan

Spiral Computed Tomography or CT, is an x-ray imaging technology that uses computer manipulation to produce three-dimensional construction pictures as well as multi-plane studies of a patient's anatomy. This service is used for diagnostic examinations as well as for emergency examinations, based on consultation between the referring physician and radiologist.

 

Hours of Operation: Monday to Sunday, (Outpatient Hours)  8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

 

 

Nuclear Medicine

This service involves state-of-the-art digital equipment featuring a Varicam photographic system that scans continuously while orbiting the body. Complete scans can be done in as little as 17 minutes. Varicam technology is used to diagnose circulatory problems, cardiac disease, bone, kidney, heart and lung problems, as well as cancer. It can also enhance diagnostic procedures for diseases such as breast cancer.

 

Hours of Operation: Monday to Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

 

 

Bone Densitometry

The 15 minute bone densitometry test is used to find out if a patient has, or will develop, osteoporosis. Images are usually taken of the lower back and hip area. A baseline test is normally done around the time of menopause and may be repeated every two years.

 

Hours of Operation: Monday to Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

 

 

Ultrasound

Ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves to examine internal soft tissue in patients. Tests are done on internal abdominal or pelvic organs, and more superficial structures such as veins, arteries and thyroid glands.

 

Hours of Operation: Monday to Sunday, (Outpatient Hours) 7:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

 

 

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

An MRI is a procedure that uses magnetic fields instead of radiation to take detailed pictures of tissues and organs in the body. It is especially useful to see fine tissue contrast, internal organs and structures in great detail from different angles. An MRI is often done to diagnose brain and nervous system problems; bone, joint and muscle disorders; tumours; certain heart and blood vessel disease; or cancer of the reproductive organs, liver, kidneys, lymph nodes, bladder, pancreas or vocal cords. Depending on what is being examined, the MRI scan can last anywhere from 20 minutes and up.

 

Hours of Operation: 7 days per week (80 hours per week)
