*Please note that while a full body MRI scan provides an overall assessment, specific scanning parameters are necessary for a detailed examination of the prostate and breast.

Prostate MRI Screening

Performing a prostate MRI on our exclusive 3T MRI scanner significantly enhances the sensitivity and accuracy of prostate cancer detection. The scan typically takes about 30 minutes. Patients with a history of prostate cancer or those who have had an inconclusive prostate biopsy are not eligible for this screening study.

The screening prostate MRI scan is only conducted without contrast on a 3T MRI Scanner at the Mississauga location.

Screening Liver Fat

Liver Fat Quantification MRI

Fat buildup in the liver is a common condition and is a crucial feature of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. It can also occur due to alcohol abuse, viral hepatitis, and other illnesses. This non-invasive study measures the amount of fat inside liver cells (hepatic steatosis). High levels of liver fat can indicate and contribute to an increased risk of death and illness. Fortunately, steatosis can be reversed with appropriate treatment. The study takes about 30 minutes and does not require contrast agents, ensuring patient comfort.
*This study is usually done simultaneously as a whole-body MRI scan.

Breast MRI

Breast MRI Screening

Especially useful for women with dense breasts on mammogram. Performed bilaterally with the use of intravenous contrast only on low risk patients.

Breast Implant MRI

MRI is great at evaluating the integrity of silicone breast implants and the fibrous capsule that forms around an implant. MRI will be able to tell the difference between intracapsular and extracapsular breast implant rupture. This study takes around 20 minutes and no contrast is required.

Screening Coronary CTA

Coronary (Cardiac) CTA and Calcium Scoring

This study will determine if plaque buildup has narrowed your coronary arteries, which are essential vessels that supply blood to your heart.
The findings from this study may determine lifestyle changes and/or further treatment/testing. This study is performed on a CT scanner and requires the intravenous administration of an iodine-containing contrast. It can take up to 30 minutes to complete.

Cardiac Calcium Scoring

This study is used for screening to detect coronary disease early, before the onset of symptoms. There is no need for advanced preparation, and no contrast agent is required. The study is typically performed with a coronary CTA to provide more valuable information, but it can also be obtained independently. The study is performed on a CT scanner; no contrast is required.

CT Lung Cancer Screening

Low-dose lung cancer screening using computed tomography (CT) has been shown to offer several benefits, particularly in patients who are smokers or have a history of smoking. It helps detect lung nodules, which can be cancer precursors and improve survival rates. Detecting lung cancer early leads to less treatment, improved recovery, and a significantly better quality of life, providing reassurance and comfort.

*Not eligible for private pay for patients who are 55-74 years old and have 20 pack-year history of smoking.

This facility performs Breast MRI Screening on low-risk women only without symptomatology or a history of breast cancer

Only for asymptomatic low-risk screeners. If the below applies you do not qualify:

  • Women who are BRCA 1 and 2 gene mutation carriers
  • Women who received chest irradiation for treatment of another malignancy such as lymphoma between the ages of 10–30 years of age
  • Women with PTEN Li-Fraumeni syndrome, Cowden syndrome, or Bannayan-Riley-Ruvalcaba syndrome, or one of these syndromes in first-degree relatives.

* If you are a high-risk screener and would like to be considered for a Breast MRI Screening examination please have a discussion with your primary care physician about a referral to a hospital based breast assessment centre
