Who is Tom?

A computerized TOMography scan (CT scan) uses computers and rotating X-ray equipment to produce 2-dimensional images that are a “slice” or section of the body. This data can also be used to construct 3-dimensional images of soft tissues, blood vessels, and bones in various parts of the body. It can see hundreds of different levels of density inside the body.
A CT scan is like looking at one slice of bread within an entire loaf and its high quality imaging may be used to diagnose and monitor a variety of internal conditions such as;
★ Locate blood clots
★ Fluid loss and build up
★ Detect tumours, injuries or bleeding
★ Diagnose infections, muscle disorders and bone fractures
★ Diagnose bone conditions and monitor cancers, heart disease and growths

Patients in our area will be able to have their follow up CT scans performed close to home and avoid unnecessary travel. Having diagnostic CT services at the hospital in Saugeen Shores would enhance and improve patient care for our families, friends and neighbours and could save lives.

Over 13,100 CT scans are performed each year at the hospital in Owen Sound with a large number of those patient visits being made up of residents from Saugeen Shores, Saugeen First Nations, the areas surrounding Saugeen Shores as well as visitors to our area.
