Diagnostic Imaging Department

We are in the depths of a revitalization project that will encompass all modalities, and see the Department move into a completely new wing of the hospital.

The CT department has recently received a cutting edge Seimens Somatom 64 multi slice scanner. The CT department has now begun to provide new diagnostic procedures such as colonography, CT angiography and cardiac scanning. At this time the CT department operates 14 hours per day 5 days a week with on call coverage during off hours for emergencies.

The Diagnostic Imaging department has two Digital X-ray rooms, Kodak DR 7500. This is a first in Cornwall and will provide faster service for our patients.

The biggest news for the Diagnostic Imaging department as well as the Cornwall Community Hospital is the recent purchase and implementation of an Agfa PACS system.

This purchase will forever alter the way in which the Hospital and Physicians view images, reports and interact with the Imaging Department.
