General Radiography - X-ray 

General Radiography (X-Ray) is located in the Diagnostic Imaging department on the 1st floor of the Hospital. Patients do not need to make an appointment for most X-ray exams.

X-ray examinations that require an appointment are as follows:

Appointments may be arranged by calling the Diagnostic Imaging booking desk 705-328-6110 or fax 705-328-7315. For general inquiries regarding any examination, call 705-324-6111 ext. 4322.

Please make note of any preparation required prior to a booked X-ray procedure and follow the instructions carefully. If you are pregnant or suspect that you may be pregnant, inform your doctor and the Technologist before having an X-ray.

The X-ray division of the DI Department is staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Outpatient hours are Monday to Friday, 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.  Please note that patients are examined based on their urgency and emergency cases take precedence.

** Patients must bring the signed requisition from their physician with them to the Department.**

An X-ray examination uses electromagnetic radiation to produce images of your body. One of the oldest forms of medical imaging, X-ray is a fast, easy and safe way to view and assess conditions ranging from broken bones to pneumonia. For most X-rays, the patient experiences no discomfort other than the hardness of the X-ray table and the coolness of the exam room (necessary to keep equipment from overheating).

In 2018, all x-ray rooms will be upgraded with state of the art digital equipment; one x-ray room will be the first of its kind in Canada!
