Oak Ridges Medical Diagnostic Imaging (ORMDI) was established to service the diagnostic imaging and cardiac monitoring needs of the growing population in York Region. Our facility offers a full range of modalities including nuclear medicine, ultrasound, vascular ultrasound, X-ray, mammography, bone mineral densitometry and cardiac testing, all utilizing state-of-the-art equipment in a brand new facility.
Our goal is to provide a wide range of diagnostic imaging and cardiac monitoring services over extended hours with short waiting times and rapid report turn-around. The variety of services offered also permits several investigations to be performed at one location, usually at one appointment. Examples would include the investigation of TIA, with carotid doppler ultrasound, echocardiography and Holter monitoring all available at ORMDI. Similarly, an echocardiographic examination can be performed at the same time of nuclear cardiology testing and nuclear thyroid uptake. A scan can be performed at the same time as the thyroid ultrasound. Mammography and bone mineral densitometry can be conveniently obtained in one appointment.
We look forward to working with you and providing patients with diagnostic imaging services in a timely manner.

- Smoker or ex-smoker, 35 years of age and older;
- Persistent cough;
- Phlegm production;
