Images of Excellence

NHH's Diagnostic Imaging (DI) Department continues to stand out as one of Canada's most technologically advanced for a community hospital of this size. Our state-of-the-art, fully digitalized Diagnostic Imaging suite offers the following services:

Digital images produced throughout the DI Department are stored, retrieved, distributed and viewed electronically, eliminating the need for film hard copies. A digital Diagnostics Department shortens the time span in which diagnoses can be made and translates into earlier detection of illness and faster service for patients. From a green point of view, digital imaging eases the environmental burden previously produced by the film-based system.

A physician's referral is required for all examinations performed in the Diagnostic Imaging Department, with the exception of mammograms performed through the OBSP. For more information on the OBSP, please click here.
