Ultrasound is a widely used medical imaging technique to visualize the organs, tissues, and blood vessels of the body using sound waves. The flexibility of ultrasound imaging makes it one of the most used diagnostic imaging services requested by physicians. We perform a full compliment of Ultrasound imaging including:
A Mammogram is a specialized x-ray which provides highly detailed images of the internal structure of the breast. Pureform is proud to offer the latest full field digital Mammography (FFDM) machines in all of our clinics. Our digital Mammography technology reduces radiation exposure, improves image quality, and is the most advanced imaging available.
Pureform also offers Tomosynthesis (available at select locations), which is a new and advanced technology that takes 3D images of the breast. 3D Mammography can be more accurate then a conventional 2D mammograms as the system takes images from multiple angles allowing the radiologist to view the breast one layer at a time.
Given the risk of breast cancer increases with age, we recommended annual screening beginning at the age of 40. At Pureform, we perform both screening and diagnostic Mammograms.

Bone Mineral Densitometry (also referred to as Bone Density or BMD) screening is considered the most effective and accurate method in the early detection of bone changes and osteoporosis. Osteoporosis Canada recommends all women and men 65 years or older begin regular BMD testing. You and your physician may determine screening at an earlier age is necessary based on various risk factors.
X-Rays are the most commonly used diagnostic medical imaging tool available. X-Rays are performed for a variety of reasons to evaluate bones, lungs, or soft tissues within the body. X-Rays at Pureform & PureKids Radiology are performed on a walk-in basis.
