Provincial Medical Imaging Office

In response to the demands of today's health care challenges, the Provincial Medical Imaging Office (PMIO) was established to improve the planning, coordination, and delivery of medical imaging services across the province of British Columbia. Through a newly formed medical imaging council and supported by specific modality clinical and medical expertise, the PMIO will facilitate system-wide changes in partnership with B.C. health authorities to build a more sustainable, equitable and integrated medical imaging system that improves access and patient care.

Medical imaging includes a wide variety of imaging modalities, which serve as methods to view the internal structures and functions of the body. The many exams available aid in the diagnoses, monitoring and treatment of medical conditions and are delivered by a skilled team of specialized health-care professionals such as technologists, nurses, radiologists, nuclear medicine physicians, and support staff.

Imaging modalities include:

  • General Radiography (X-Ray)
  • Fluoroscopy (Fluoro)
  • Interventional Radiography (IR)
  • Computed Tomography (CT)
  • Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
  • Ultrasound (US)
  • Echocardiography (Echo)
  • Nuclear Medicine (NM)
  • Bone Densitometry (BD)
  • Screening and Diagnostic Mammography
