CT scans are more detailed than general x-rays, using computers to generate three-dimensional images. CT exams are fast, easy and painless. The CT scanner is a large machine with a short tunnel-like hole in the middle, where a narrow examination table slides you in and out. To learn more about how to prepare for your exam, please view our CT Prep Sheet


 

Pediatric CT

 Pediatric CTs are not done routinely at AM&GH as special protocols and dose level reductions are required. All elective Pediatric CTs are referred to the Children's Hospital of South Western Ontario in London. In the event of an emergency, special pediatric trauma protocols are implemented so that we can quickly and safely CT a child in an emergency situation.


Mammography

The hospital has been established as a breast-screening centre as part of the Ontario Breast Screening Program. This program allows women aged 50 to 70 with no history of breast disease to make self-referrals for routine mammograms. To learn more about how to prepare for your example, please view our Mammo Prep Sheet.

Ultrasound

Ultrasound uses real time, high frequency soundwaves to generate images of the body. At AMGH we do Abdominal, Pelvic,OB, Breast and small part Ultrasounds among others to image the throat, stomach, small and large bowels. Most studies require the use of barium. This is a type of contrast which allows the radiologist to see the gastro-intestinal tract in more detail.
