Whitehorse General Hospital's Medical Imaging Department provides screening and diagnostic imaging services on an inpatient and outpatient basis to Yukon, northern British Columbia and parts of Alaska.
The department is completely digital and all images are transmitted and stored in our secure Picture Archiving and Communications System (PACS), which allows images to be transferred electronically to many areas of the hospital and to southern medical facilities in British Columbia and Alberta. The dedicated staff aim to provide safe, efficient, high-quality imaging services along with world-class care to each and every patient, in a comfortable and caring environment.
All electronic transfers are performed in accordance with Yukon's Access to Information and Protection of Privacy Act and our established health records management policy and procedures.
Our Medical Imaging services include:
- X-ray (radiography)
- Computed Tomography (CT)
- Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
- Mammography (screening and diagnostic)
- Fluoroscopy (special procedures)
Patients must present either their health care card or a piece of valid government-issued identification to have their medical imaging work done.
Receiving your Results
Once your imaging exam is completed, a radiologist will review the images and provide a written report of the exam findings to your physician. This usually takes a few days, depending on the clinical urgency of your exam. Your physician will then review the results with you at your next scheduled appointment.
