The Department of Diagnostic Imaging includes X-ray, ultrasound, computerized tomography scan (CT Scan), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), mammography, nuclear medicine and angiography. The diagnostic imaging department performs more than 80,000 exams yearly.
No analog film is used in the department. All diagnostic equipment is capable of digital imaging with the results viewed on computers. This process allows for all images to be sent from the Diagnostic Imaging Department to all the other departments throughout the Sault Area Hospital for instant viewing.
Sault Area Hospital is one of only 14 other Ontario hospitals that offers cardiac catheterization.
