The QEHC is pleased to introduce Dr. Laurence Kadoch, Medical Director of the Victor & Sheila Goldbloom Digital Imaging Centre

Types of imaging

The Queen Elizabeth Health Complex Diagnostic Imaging Centre (Radiology/X-ray) is located on the main floor of the Queen Elizabeth Health Complex.

The Digital Imaging Center is fully digitized with state-of-the-art equipment and uses the expertise of a group of highly qualified radiologists to provide clients with accurate and up to date diagnostic imaging.

The Digital Imaging Center offers a variety of exams:

GENERAL X-RAY

The QEHC employs digital X-ray technology to deliver accurate and timely evaluations. An X-ray is a quick, painless exam that produces images of the body. It helps detect medical conditions in the head, spine, chest, abdomen and bones.

BONE DENSITY

Bone Mineral Densitometry (BMD) is a simple, non-invasive and painless procedure that uses very small amounts of X-ray to detect weakened bone density, or osteoporosis. BMD scanning is important because osteoporosis affects 1 in 4 women after menopause and 1 in 8 men, and bone loss occurs without symptoms. At least 80% of fractures in people over 60 are related to osteoporosis.

FLUOROSCOPY

Fluoroscopy is an imaging technique that uses X-rays to obtain real-time moving images of the internal structures of a patient. As a tool, it can be used to examine the skeletal, digestive, urinary, respiratory, muscular and reproductive systems. At the QEHC, studies include Barium Swallows, Upper G.I. Series, as well as Arthrography (the study of joints). Fluoroscopy can be used to examine the digestive system using a substance which is opaque to X-rays which is introduced into the digestive system. Other exams may involve injection of a contrast substance.
