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.

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.

The Medical Imaging Department uses X-Rays and/or Ultrasound  that aid in the diagnosis of diseases, conditions and/or treatment.  All 3 sites have qualified Medical Radiation Technologists who are registered with the CMRTO.
