Canada Diagnostic Centres Privacy Statement

Canada Diagnostic Centres respects the privacy of its visitors to our website and is committed to maintaining the confidentiality and security of your personal information. As part of this commitment, we have established Privacy Principles to govern our use of patient and client information.

CDC complies with two privacy laws. One is healthcare-related and the other is business-related. In Alberta, when personal information is collected, used or disclosed in the course of providing publicly-funded healthcare services it is covered by the Health Information Act (HIA). At the same time, the Personal Information Protection Act (PIPA) protects personal information collected, used or disclosed by private-sector companies, including CDC. In practice, the requirements of these laws are reasonably similar and can be satisfied at the same time. Where standards differ, we meet the higher one.

We make information about our privacy policy and practices available to our patients. If you are unsure about which law applies to your information and what that means for you, or if you have any other privacy questions, requests or concerns, please refer to the Contact Us Section below.


By accessing and using our “Request an Appointment” services on this Site, you will have provided your implied consent to our collection, use, or disclosure of your personal health information in accordance with this Policy, for the purpose of scheduling diagnostic exams.

This information will be collected in a secure portion of the Web site and only used by internal personnel responsible for administering information requests.

Principle 2 – Information Disclosure

Personal information about visitors to our Web site is not disclosed to any third parties. It is also not shared with Canada Diagnostic Centres personnel who do not require such information to perform their job duties.

What To Expect

We make it a priority to ensure that you are at ease during your CT exam.

  • Complete the necessary medical forms obtained from front desk staff.
  • Canada Diagnostic Centres provides private and secure change rooms. Comfortable two piece scrubs will be provided for you to change into. You may be asked to remove your jewelry.
  • One of our friendly technologists will take you to the exam room and position you on the cushioned CT table.
  • The table is then moved into the centre of the scanner and the images are taken. You will have verbal contact with the technologist throughout the scan should you need any assistance.
  • Please note: it is important to remain still during the exam; otherwise images will be blurry.
  • In certain instances, a contrast dye may be injected into the examination area to enhance the images. Should this be required, you will be advised when booking your exam.
  • Once the scan is complete, you are free to leave and resume normal activity. The results are sent directly from our radiologist to your referring physician.
  • At your request, Canada Diagnostic Centres offers a complimentary CD-ROM that contains images from your CT.

Pre-Exam Preparations

Canada Diagnostic Centres strives to ensure that every patient is both comfortable and well informed before and on the day of his or her exam.

Heart Scan
  • Do not eat or drink any products containing caffeine on the day of the examination (ie. coffee, pop, chocolate).
Virtual Colonoscopy
  • Detailed instructions available. Please call 403.212.5847
Intravenous Contrast Enhancement
  • Diabetics must consult with their referring doctor, as serious reactions can occur in patients taking Metformin/Glucophage.

Medical Fact

CT scans can be much more detailed and informative than x-ray scans. Think of an x-ray scan as a slice of bread and a CT scan as a loaf of bread, combining individual slices of bread for a more complete arrangement.
