MRI

Headwaters Health Care Centre is proud to deliver patient-centred quality care through the arrival of Dufferin-Caledon's first MRI. 

Thanks to the generosity of our community and funds raised through Headwaters Health Care Foundation's, Smart Headwaters campaign, you will soon be able to come to Headwaters for MRI scans close to home. Operational funding for MRI has been provided by the Ministry of Health. 

The arrival of our region’s first MRI means enhanced access to healthcare for the residents of Dufferin-Caledon. Getting an MRI at Headwaters means you won’t have to travel far for diagnostic services. 

When the implementation is complete, your health care provider will be able to make an appointment on your behalf for the following services. Please speak with your health care provider for a referral: 

  • Breast MRI 
  • Musculoskeletal MRI 
  • Neuro (brain and spine) MRI 
  • Pelvic / Abdominal MRI 
  • Prostate MRI 

All services are currently for patients over the age of 8.  

What is an MRI? 

MRI is diagnostic imaging equipment that produces detailed images of the internal organs through a strong magnetic field and computer-generated radio waves.
