What is Diagnostic Imaging (DI)?

Diagnostic Imaging includes the following:

  • General/routine X-rays
  • Ultrasound
  • Bone Mineral Densitometry (BMD) which checks how strong your bones are

What do we do at the Laboratory?

The Lab Services include a wide range of tests performed on blood, body fluids and tissues in order to help the healthcare provider correctly detect, diagnose and prevent diseases.

Do I need to do anything before coming to Diagnostic Imaging or the Laboratory?

You must register at the reception desk when you arrive, you must bring:

  • The paperwork or requisition the doctor or nurse gave you
  • Your healthcare card
  • A piece of photo identification

If you have an appointment, please arrive 15 to 20 minutes before your appointment to give yourself enough time to register.
