Imagix's fifteen clinics in Québec are equipped with the latest technology. Our radiologists have an excellent reputation and our imaging and X-ray examinations — for diagnosing injuries, bone diseases, fractures, infections, degenerative diseases, cancer, etc. — are performed with a doctor’s prescription. The majority of our x-ray services are available without an appointment. They are covered 100% by the Régie de l’assurance maladie du Québec.
Since a breast X-Ray makes it possible to see small-sized lesions, it is the most effective examination to screen for breast cancer, even when there are no symptoms.
It is performed by an X-ray technologist, entails no costs, takes only a few minutes and poses no risk of trauma or injury. Most Imagix X-ray clinics are screening centres designated by the Quebec Breast Cancer Screening Program (PQDCS).
Bone density scan
A bone density scan is a safe, painless X-ray examination.
It makes it possible to measure the density of your bones and determine whether you have osteoporosis: a disease characterized by a decrease in bone mineral density. Osteoporosis can be caused by smoking, a sedentary lifestyle, low body weight or a high intake of alcohol and caffeine.
An ultrasound is a painless, effective examination. It takes images of your body: breasts, heart, liver, kidneys, fetus.
An ultrasound, also named sonography, is a painless and effective examination that uses an ultrasonic device (high-frequency sound waves) to create real-time diagnostic images of body. It can also measure the blood flow in the main veins and arteries.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), a non-invasive examination often used to obtain specific diagnostic data, makes it possible to capture clear, precise images of the human body.
During the MRI, you remain motionless from 20 to 60 minutes; the technologist, who watches and listens to you at all times, ensures your comfort and well-being.
Please note that MRI examinations aren’t covered by the Régie de l’assurance maladie du Québec (RAMQ).
Computed tomography (CT-Scan)
A computed tomography, or CT scan, is an X-ray examination that captures detailed images in 3D.
Imagix uses a state-of-the-art CT scanner to provide you with the highest possible diagnostic accuracy, while reducing risks and discomfort. Almost any part of your body can be observed using CT.
The images are captured very quickly to minimize the dose of radiation you absorb. If your CT scan requires a contrast agent, it is important not to eat or drink for three hours before the examination.

What is radiology and how does it work?
Radiology (includes X-ray, mammogram, bone density scan, computed tomography, fluoroscopy-guided infiltration, digestive and oral radiology) is a medical imaging technique used mainly for the purposes of examining, identifying and locating. X-rays and ionizing rays allow us to examine various regions of the body and assist in establishing a medical diagnosis. This technique is also used to locate and identify the nature of any foreign bodies.
Radiology for the purpose of examination involves taking X-ray images of certain areas of the body. During the appointment, the patient is asked to place the area to examine on the plate of the X-ray machine. The patient must remain still and hold their breath for a fraction of a second. We can do this examination in our clinics, upon request and without an appointment.
This examination is not without risk, since it uses X-rays and ionizing radiation. Consequently, radiology is not recommended for pregnant women because it can be detrimental to the growth of the fetus. If you are pregnant, it is important to inform the clinic staff.
