We are fully licensed by the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care to provide mobile x- ray and ultrasound services to patients in their homes or in Palliative Care Centres with the approval of a home care program (LHIN Local Health Integration Network) or through the Ministry of Health’s Independent funding program. Our personalized service, utilization of the most advanced equipment and our professional staff make StL Diagnostic Imaging the premier mobile imaging service in Canada.
The residence must have wheelchair access or a maximum of two/three steps to accommodate the x-ray machine. In some instances, even two steps can be too high given the weight of transporting our equipment. The ultrasound machines are more transportable and can accommodate most residences.
The x-rays obtained allow us to assess for abnormalities in the chest, abdomen, bones or other areas imaged. Any general radiograph can be provided.
The ultrasound examinations are able to assess for deep vein thrombosis, look for pathology in the abdomen and pelvis and assess the status of the arteries. We perform all general and vascular ultrasound examinations.
Diagnostic images are reviewed and reported promptly by the radiologist.
Typing of reports are performed immediately upon dictation by medical transcriptionists. Significant positive findings are telephoned to the referring physician and typed reports are sent by fax. Most of our reports are sent within 24 hours and requests for urgent reports are sent the same day.
StL Diagnostic Imaging has partnered with Pocket Health to provide patients with the ability to access their imaging privately and securely online.
