Humble beginnings: Georgian Radiology Consultants
Georgian Radiology Consultants humbly began in 1972 with a single X-ray machine. Today, we have expanded to five locations throughout Barrie, Innisfil, Collingwood and Wasaga Beach. We are equipped with a nuclear medicine gamma camera, 18 ultrasound units, 6 X-ray machines, as well as 4 bone densitometry machines.
Certified in Diagnostic Radiology with the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada, the highly-trained and professional radiologists at Georgian Radiology Consultants offer superior quality imaging, coupled with complete patient confidentiality.
All technologists meet the criteria and standards set by the province of Ontario. The clerical staff are courteous, helpful and always more than happy to explain all procedures to make you feel at ease.
Our clinics are accessible for patients with disabilities and special needs, as Georgian Radiology fully supports Access.
What is Interventional Radiology, and who are Interventional Radiologists?
Interventional Radiology is a medical subspecialty of Radiology that deals with minimally-invasive, image-guided treatments to treat a broad range of diseases and problems with the human body.

As the procedures do not involve open surgery with direct visualization, Interventional Radiologists must use their extensive Radiology training/background to guide them.
Interventional radiologists are board-certified, fellowship-trained, highly specialised clinical doctors who use x-ray or fluoroscopy (basically low-dose x-ray in real-time), CAT/CT Scans, or ultrasound to both diagnose and treat a broad range of diseases. They diagnose and treat a broad range of diseases, including:

When the kidney function is very poor, patients sometimes require external help – this ‘help’ is generally called dialysis.
A stroke is a condition in which poor blood flow to the brain results in cell death. There are two main types of stroke: ischemic, due to lack of blood flow, and hemorrhagic, due to bleeding.
