Imaging tests – X-rays, MRIs, mammograms and the like – are widely used to help detect a variety of medical conditions. These tests let doctors see what’s happening inside your body; for example, joint or bone problems, sports injuries, cancers, heart disease, digestive issues, pneumonia and pregnancy. They may also be used to see how well certain treatments are working.

We offer a range of imaging services and state-of-the-art radiology equipment and techniques, including a growing number of advanced treatments that are guided by imaging. Our highly trained radiology team helps provide a safe and comfortable experience.

Expert Radiology Care

Our team knows that early detection of a medical problem is the first step to proper treatment. We offer:

  • The latest technology – We are consistently first in the region to use some of the newest, most advanced imaging equipment and tests. For example:
    • Computed tomographic (CT) scans that create multiple pictures of specific parts of the body
    • Magnetic resonance elastrography that can show stiffness in certain body tissues – often a red flag for problems
    • Functional magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) that measures brain activity
  • A commitment to safety – We limit radiation doses to the lowest possible level and adhere to all safety standards.
  • A caring experience – We know having medical tests can be worrying. We help put your mind at ease by letting you know what to expect. We also offer caring suites specifically designed to help you to relax; you can listen to soothing music, watch a favorite movie or read.

Imaging Tests and Services

  • X-rays provide single images of a specific area or part of your body.
  • CT scans show multiple pictures of an area or internal organ.
  • Ultrasound uses sound waves to show internal structures and organs.
  • MRI uses magnetic fields to produce detailed images.
  • Breast imaging and testing are used to take pictures of the breasts or take small tissue samples (breast biopsies) to look for diseases like cancer.
  • Fluoroscopy can show movement of body functions in real-time, similar to a video.
  • Nuclear medicine and PET scans uses radioactive medication to create images.
  • Interventional radiology provides imaging guidance for targeted treatment of some diseases.
  • Pediatric imaging tests and services to evaluate a range of injuries and illnesses affecting infants and children.

Our imaging technologists are licensed and trained to conduct imaging tests. While they can answer questions about your test, your doctor will interpret them and share the results with your healthcare team.

Digital Imaging Network

We have one of the most extensive digital communication systems in the region for imaging procedures as it allows doctors and technologists to access patient records for quicker, more accurate diagnosis and treatment. This means:

  • Radiologists can review scans from any location within and easily share them and consult with other specialists and care teams to assist with diagnoses
  • Images are also available in all clinical areas of the system, including emergency department and operating rooms
