Diagnostic Imaging Technology
Our G.E. 3.0T demonstrates disease that cannot be seen with a 1.5T MRI
Producing radiation free images that are the closest thing to blueprints of the human body, our state-of-the art 3 Tesla MRI machine is the first available 3T magnet in Canada for clinical use and is the highest resolution scanner available in the world today. A high performance, clinically proven scanner, Signa HDx 3.0T helps you definitively diagnose your most complex cases and further supercharges HD performance with lightning speed, superb image quality and unique premium clinical applications.
GE 64 Slice CT Scanner (Low dose protocol)
The LightSpeed VCT is the latest innovation in CT technology. VCT means “Volume CT“ ushering in a new era in CT imaging. The innovative hallmark of this non-invasive imaging system is the new V-Res detector with its ability to deliver wide anatomical coverage and high resolution, simultaneously. This unprecedented coverage speed allows clinicians to capture whole organs in a second, the heart in 5 beats or go large sections of the body in under 10 seconds — faster than any other CT scanner on the market today. Specifically, the LightSpeed VCT covers 4cm of patient anatomy per rotation, gathering 64 slices at 0.625mm (about the thickness of a credit card). Gantry rotation speed is < 375 milli-seconds…or approximately 2.5 to 3 rotations per second.
Dual Energy Digital X-Ray
Our new GE dual-scan digital x-ray unit demonstrates outstanding sensitivity & resolution, and provides weight bearing images of the entire body.
3D & 4D Ultrasound, & Echo Cardiograms
Ultrasound is one of the most widely used diagnostic procedures available. It provides a safe, non-invasive and virtually painless means of observing soft tissue anatomy on an outpatient basis. Our Philips ultrasound system generates an advanced level of image quality to help you diagnose with confidence. It may provide you with all the information needed to recommend a course of action, eliminating the need for other types of more complicated exams or exploratory surgery.
