Medical Diagnostic Imaging
We combine our medical diagnostic imaging and treatment programs with a holistic approach and expertise provided by our diagnostic and treatment physicians, surgeons, nurses, therapists and medical support staff through state of the art X-ray and Ultrasound diagnostic equipment.
Mammogram or Breast mammography has become the standard breast screening tool in the detection and treatment of early stage breast cancers. Mammograms have significantly reduced breast cancer mortality in women.
ABUS (Automated Breast Ultrasound System) builds upon the advancements in screening and detection through 3D ultrasound by providing physicians with a 3D volumetric scan technology to comfortably and quickly image women with dense breast tissue. Each exam takes approximately 15 minutes.
Radiologists and physicians can now digitally examine throughout all tissue layers from any angle. ABUS significantly increases scanning sensitivity versus traditional mammogram technology resulting in earlier detection success rates.

Ultrasound is a diagnostic, non-invasive tool used to see internal body structures such as tendons, muscles, joints, vessels and internal organs. A common use of ultrasound is in the examination of pregnant women. The application of ultrasound covers many clinical needs from abdominal to endocrinology applications. PolyCan Health Centre will have ultrasound diagnostic equipment with advanced evaluation tools and real-time imaging available to patients for diagnosis and treatment recommendations for MSK pathologies, cardiology and vascular disease, obstetrics and gynecology and interventional and surgical procedures.
Digital X-Ray uses significant less radiation in imaging than traditional film x-rays and can produce better viewing capabilities. Our patients deserve a quicker and more precise diagnosis using the latest in post-processing high-resolution image manipulation tools.
