CALGARY, June 19, 2012 /CNW/ - Insight Medical Imaging, Northern Alberta's largest community based medical imaging provider, is opening a state-of-the-art medical imaging facility in Fort McMurray on June 25, 2012. Prior to the existence of this facility, all medical imaging in the Wood Buffalo region has been performed in hospital. With this new clinic, patients now have community based access to a broad range of key diagnostics. Wait times for these important studies should significantly decrease, as should the need to travel to major centres like Edmonton.
Located on the lower level of River City Centre, 404 Franklin Avenue, the facility houses brand new imaging equipment to perform x-ray, ultrasound, echocardiography mammography, bone densitometry and nuclear medicine studies. Cardiac stress tests will also be available. Until now, studies like nuclear medicine imaging and bone densitometry have been unavailable locally to Fort McMurray residents. General x-ray will be performed on a walk-in basis with no appointment needed, although a requisition from a doctor is required.
Insight Medical Imaging is an established and up-to-date imaging provider. All imaging studies are interpreted by radiologists with Royal College and Fellowship training. Insight has long been a leader in community based imaging, having served Alberta for more than 70 years. They have sixteen clinics in Edmonton and surrounding area. Diagnostics available through the network of Insight clinics include MRI and Northern Alberta's only non-hospital based CT scanner. Their staff is friendly and well trained.
