Diagnostic Imaging

Port Arthur Health Centre provides a comprehensive array of radiology and diagnostic imaging services involving advanced techniques that assist physicians in the accurate diagnosis and treatment of organs.

In addition to the x-ray we provide a full spectrum of imaging services including mammography and ultrasound.

Are X-rays or Ultrasound dangerous?

Over-exposure to X-rays can be hazardous, but properly monitored by your doctor, they pose no danger to you. Appointment with the Radiology lab can only be made by your physician. It is always advised to inform your doctor about any X-rays you may have received outside his/her knowledge. Ultrasound, on the other hand, poses no health threat because it employs sound waves rather than radiation.

The Port Arthur Health Centre's Diagnostic Imaging Facility works in cooperation with the Northwestern Ontario Breast Screening Program in delivering their mammography services.
