Ultrasound is located in the Diagnostic Imaging department on the 1st floor of the Hospital. Examinations are done by appointment only with an order from a physician. Appointments are available weekdays, during regular business hours and may be arranged by calling the Diagnostic Imaging booking desk 705-328-6186 or faxing the requisition to 705-328-6188. The Ultrasound division provides an “on-call” service during weekends and holidays for emergency examinations. For general inquiries regarding any examination, call 705-328-6110 and press 4.
Ultrasound uses high frequency sound waves to image a variety of structures within the body. Preparation is very important for some Ultrasound examinations; if preparation is not adequate, some anatomy cannot be assessed.
**Please follow preparation instructions carefully.**
