In Calgary and Saskatchewan, our private pay MRIs use radio waves and a strong magnetic field to provide very clear images of the body, without radiation. This advanced medical imaging technique is often used to help diagnose diseases of the brain, spine, skeleton, abdomen, and soft tissues.
In Saskatchewan, we provide MRIs as a publicly funded, community-based service under contract with the Saskatchewan Health Authority and as a private pay exam. Private MRI services in Saskatchewan are provided in accordance with and under the legislation of the Province of Saskatchewan. Please click here for a Saskatchewan Private MRI Price Sheet.
In Calgary, MRI exams are provided at our Mayfair Place location as private pay exams and are not covered by Alberta Health Care. Mayfair recently installed a new, higher strength magnet, and now operates both 1.5T and 3T MRI services at Mayfair Place. Having two magnet strengths provides greater options to use MRI to more specifically meet the imaging needs of various medical conditions.
Your health spending account or group medical insurance plan may cover the cost of a private MRI that is prescribed by a qualified health care practitioner. You will need to check with your plan administrator for coverage details.
