Diagnostic Imaging

The Diagnostic Imaging department provides service to all clinicians within The Medical Centre and welcomes patient referrals from other Clinicians in the community.

We are a modern digital imaging facility, providing x-rays, mammography and both Breast and General Ultrasound services.

We provide routine Mammography and breast screening follow-ups, along with Ontario Breast Screening exams. We have a radiologist on site Monday thru Friday, who does breast ultrasounds and then directs the follow-up to abnormal screenings.

A radiologist is on site every day to read both the general x-ray exams and the ultrasound exams.

Qualified x-ray technologists perform full-field digital Xray exams. These exams include those for chest, skull, abdomen, extremities and spines.

Our modern, digital facility uses PACS (Picture Archiving and Communications System) for storing and retrieving images. We are then able to provide a CD of the exam for patients who are seeing a Specialist outside of The Medical Centre.

M.C.D.S. meets the standards of the Canadian Association of Radiologists Mammography Accreditation Program. This program is available through self-referral or through a physician’s office. A state of the art computer tracking system facilitates the registration and regular recall of patients. Recalls are usually scheduled every two years.

Mammography

We are a C.A.R. accredited site, meaning both the equipment and staff adhere to strict guidelines set out by the Canadian Association of Radiologists. Routine screening mammograms are available for patients ages 40 and up with a Doctor's signed requisition.

At the Medical Centre Breast Clinic we provide follow-up examinations to compliment the routine mammogram if an abnormality is seen. Follow-up may include Breast ultrasound, and/or additional special mammography views (i.e. magnification or spot compression views). Our on-site Radiologist will then meet with the patient to discuss these additional exams.

Breast Ultrasound

Our on- site Radiologist, Dr. D. Chenoweth, performs breast ultrasounds on a daily basis Monday through Friday. In consultation with the referring physician, he may also perform a cyst aspiration, galactogram or core biopsy.
