Diagnostic Imaging

Diagnostic imaging is the use of non-invasive technology to look inside and produce images of a certain area of the body. Doctors use these images to help diagnose and treat disease. 

At Blanche River Health, we offer several types of diagnostic imaging across our hospital sites.  Services provided at each site include x-ray, ultrasound, echocardiography, carotid doppler, peripheral venous studies and bone mineral densitometry. Our Kirkland Lake site offers mammography, peripheral arterial studies and computed tomography (CT) services. 

Medical imaging requisitions for the Kirkland Lake Site can be faxed to (705)-568-2149.

Medical imaging requisitions for the Englehart Site can be faxed to (705)-544-5217.

Our sites offer a range of therapeutic programs, including:

  • Physiotherapy, referring to work intended to break down barriers to physical function.  
  •  Occupational therapy, assisting individuals in developing and/or maintaining quality of life through the ability to complete activities at home and in the community where this ability has been challenged by accident, disability, developmental difficulties, or other considerations.
