We Are Open - however, we have temporarily reduced our hours of operation. The safety of our patients and staff remain our top priority, so during this time we have increased our disinfecting of high touch surfaces, patient screening protocols, and limited the amount of people in our common areas and facilities as a whole. We ask that patients help us in this effort and do their best to attend the facility without additional family members whenever possible, and please call ahead prior to any appointments.

As one of the area’s most prominent resources for high quality healthcare, Credit Valley Diagnostic Centre's staff is continually working hard to ensure that we provide you with an exceptional level of service, shorter wait times for appointments, and convenient hours of operation to cover any of your x-ray, ultrasound, mammography, bone density or echocardio needs. We are proud to offer the following diagnostic imaging services to our community:
At Credit Valley Diagnostic Centre, having your x-ray exams completed has become simpler and quicker than ever before. Using cutting edge digital imaging along with experienced staff, we are able to process exams with efficiency, and keep our x-ray wait times down to a matter of minutes. No appointment needed.
Our highly skilled and experienced sonographers are able to perform a wide variety of complex ultrasound exams including - but not limited to - breast, obstetric, and musculoskeletal work. With our continued commitment to re-investing in our staff and equipment, we are able to obtain exceptionally high quality ultrasound imaging that is delivered in a caring and compassionate environment.
Using industry leading equipment and technology in the field of mammography, along with our partnership with fellowship-trained breast radiologists, Credit Valley Diagnostic Centre prides itself on offering unparalleled quality healthcare to all members of the community. To that end, we are presently the 3rd facility in all of Canada to offer GE's innovative Pristina mammogram technology to our patients.
We are also proud to be an active member of the Ontario Breast Screening Program (OBSP), which successfully screens hundreds of thousands of women a year for early detection of breast cancer. The program seeks to provide the highest quality breast cancer screening while offering quick turnaround time for results, as well as third party oversight.
We offer Bone Mineral Density examination appointments to our patient base 5-days a week at either of our Mississauga locations. These tests are conducted with precision and accuracy to ensure that your risk for fracture and/or osteoporosis is properly assessed.
At Credit Valley Diagnostic Centre, we recognise the importance of each and every exam that we perform - and that extends to our Echo Lab as well. Partnering with an esteemed group of cardiologists who practice in the Trillium Health Partners network of hospitals, we offer our patients the highest quality care available.
All X-Rays are done on a walk-in basis, with booked appointments required for Ultrasound, Mammography, Bone Density or Echocardiogram exams. Call either of our Mississauga offices today and a member of our staff will be more than happy to find an appointment time that best fits your schedule.
QUALITY CARE & TURNAROUND TIME
We operate strictly on the principle of delivering the highest quality healthcare available, and that extends itself to the full continuance of your patients care - which means getting the results to you quickly and effectively. As an HRM enabled facility, we typically issue STAT reports within one hour or less, and standard cases within one business day.
At Credit Valley Diagnostic Centre, we always have Hospital-based academic radiologists reporting on-site, daily. This translates into highly effective care for your patients, and immediate access for you should you require a sub-speciality radiologists consultation.
Our online Physicians Portal offers you instantaneous access to your patients imaging the moment the exam is completed. The portal is updated again in real-time with the report once one has been issued by one of our radiologists. Please contact our head office for access and more information.

CAN I ACCESS MY IMAGES AND REPORTS ONLINE?
The short answer: Yes.
At CVDC we are doing everything we can to offer the most convenient and transparent services to our patients - and that means offering them online access to their imaging history. In a platform created and maintained by the PocketHealth company, our patients are able to create an account and share their imaging results with surgeons, physicians, or specialists without having to carry around and keep track of separate CD's. PocketHealth is being used in major Hospitals across Ontario and protects personal health information with 256 bit encryption, just as your bank does with your online banking. Pockethealth is also compliant with the Health Information Protection Act and has layers of built-in privacy features that include multiple verification fields.
More information about PocketHealth and requesting your images can be found here.
CAN I GET A PAPER COPY OF MY REPORT/CD OF MY EXAM?
Should you wish to obtain a paper copy of your report, or a disc of your most recent exam to bring to a specialist or doctor for follow-up, simply call our offices and a member of our clerical staff will be happy to arrange that for you - free of charge.
