Diagnostic Imaging (DI) refers to the technology used by physicians to look inside your body and gain a better understanding or look for clues about medical symptoms. At Guelph General Hospital, all diagnostic examinations are performed by highly-trained technologists and radiologists.

A physician’s referral is required for all tests and procedures performed with the exception of the Ontario Breast Screening Program (OBSP).

Women who are pregnant or think they may be pregnant should notify their referring physician and the technologist before proceeding with any diagnostic imaging examination.

All of Guelph General Hospital’s imaging systems are digital. The department provides electronic images and services to inpatients and outpatients.
