About the Diagnostic Imaging Department

The Diagnostic Imaging Department at Ross Memorial Hospital is a state-of-the-art digital radiology department including MRI and CT services.

The DI Department currently performs approximately 75,000 exams each year.

The Diagnostic Imaging Team consists of highly trained individuals who provide exceptional care to all patients. The core Team members are:

RMH utilizes a Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS) and is integrated with the provincial data image repository (HDIRS) and the Emergency Neurosurgery Image Transfer System (ENITS). ENITS enables ER physicians to send CT images to on-call neurosurgeons for assessment when a patient presents with head trauma. By looking at the images online, the neurosurgeon can assess the patient’s condition and determine whether the patient should be transferred or whether his or her care can be managed at RMH. 

With the help of generous donors, the Diagnostic Imaging department has completed renovations that include the installation of cutting edge x-ray and mammography equipment.
