Our Medical Imaging department offers an accredited digital mammography program and performs thousands of mammograms each year. Our specially trained and experienced technologists keep comfort in mind. Our new and updated equipment can screen for breast cancer and lumps that are too small to be felt. In general, digital mammogram results are available within 24 hours.

When follow up testing is indicated, Regina’s ultrasound department expedites your appointment to keep waiting at a minimum.

An eight multi-slice GE Lightspeed CT scanner allows doctors to simultaneously capture multiple images in a matter of minutes. This advanced technology not only means more diagnostic information for doctors, but its speed can also save precious exam time in the emergency department.

MRI uses magnetism, radio waves, and computers to produce images. Detailed information can be gathered on the head, spine, heart, glands and organs within the abdomen, joints, soft tissues and bones.

Nuclear medicine produces a physiologic image of specific body processes. Regina’s nuclear camera assists in the diagnosis of conditions found in bones, the gall bladder, for kidney dysfunction and thyroid disorders. Many nuclear scans are conducted for cardiolite testing to assess the blood flow to heart muscles and to look for the presence of blocked arteries.

The DXA Scanner uses noninvasive technology for bone density studies and diagnosis of bone disease including osteoporosis.

Fluoroscopy is a technique for obtaining "live” x-ray images. It is often used to observe the digestive tract or during diagnostic and therapeutic radiological procedures.
