X-ray

Dedicated Imaging

X-ray uses ionizing radiation to produce images of the body's bones, joints and lungs.  The professional performing the test is a Radiographer or X-Ray Tech and all our technologists are members in good standing of the CMRTO (College of Medical Radiation Technologist of Ontario).  All tests are reviewed and interpreted by a Radiologist.

Due to the fact that x-rays are ionizing, extreme care is made to ensure that only the body part requested by a physician, nurse practitioner or chiropractor is exposed.  Lead shielding is used to protect other sensitive body parts from being exposed.  

X-ray services are offered at both Thunder Bay Medical Centre site and the !0th Ave location.
