MEDICAL IMAGING

 

Medical Imaging involves advanced imaging techniques using updated equipment. These images assist physicians/caregivers to diagnose and suggest the proper treatment in your recovery.  We offer a realistic service that reduces the stress of traveling to larger centers while striving towards our goal of providing more imaging clinics to enhance the quality of our care.

Without this service modern medicine would lack general x-rays, ultrasounds, fetal biophysical profiles, gastric and echocardiogram clinics, as well as carotid and venous leg dopplers. These services allow us to view the internal organs in order to make decisions regarding appropriate treatment options.  

Our department utilizes many internal, as well as external partnerships.  Within the hospital we work with managers and staff of the emergency department, acute care unit and long term care unit, health information services, information technology, on site physicians, and specialists.  As for outside the site, our position between Sault St. Marie and Sudbury allows us to work with physician and nurse practitioner clinics, vascular clinics, and cancer clinics in larger hospitals and along the North Shore.
