We Need Your Help

Our current MRI system is used over 11,000 times annually, on patients from across Grey and Bruce,  to diagnose a range of medical conditions. It is reaching the end of its life-span and must be replaced. A new MRI system will be a major step forward in allowing this critical service to provide services right here, close to home.

Enhanced Efficiency

Faster imaging to significantly reduce scan times.
Increased energy efficiency.

Enhanced Accuracy

Higher resolution imaging.
New software for cardiac and prostate imaging.
Enhanced breast imaging for biopsy & detection.

Enhanced Comfort

Quieter tests so patients experience less noise.
A more spacious tunnel for patient comfort.

Grateful for Access to MRI

“I initially thought I had whiplash and it turned out I had metastatic breast cancer that had returned after eight years of being completely cancer free.”

A New MRI Means Better Patient Care!

“MRI produces wonderful, three dimensional, volumetric imaging of any structure in the body we want,” says Dr. Colin McIver.

“The machine we have was state of the art 14 years ago – but it no longer is. The spatial resolution available on modern machines is far superior to what we currently have. We are no longer able to image patients over 300 lbs as the table is no longer able to deal with them.”

Many of our complex care patients go on to London for treatment. If we don’t match the technology and spatial resolution of MRI currently available in London, then those specialists will not accept scans on patients from Grey Bruce.

“I hope that our community will support this project as they have many others for us in the past. Your support enables us to provide the people of Grey Bruce with the very best medical imaging available – close to home. Thanks so much for all your help!”

Dr. Colin McIver is Chief of Medical Imaging at Grey Bruce Health Services.
