Juravinski Hospital

The Juravinski Hospital & Cancer Centre is a full-service general hospital and offers excellence in cancer care and orthopedics. Serving as a large tertiary referral centre for the Central West Region of Ontario and its population base of 2.3 million, it is the second largest cancer centre in Canada providing acute inpatient and palliative care, diagnostic services and an educational environment to support the needs of cancer patients. The highly regarded orthopedic program combines health care and research, offering patients a range of services dedicated to helping them prepare for and recover from joint replacement surgery. The MSK imaging team has strong links with Orthopedic Surgery, Pathology, Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Sports Medicine and Oncologists.

The hospital represents one of only three designated centres in Ontario specializing in the provision of sarcoma care. The orthopedic oncology department receives a large number of referrals for musculoskeletal tumours, with imaging playing an important role in their management. This includes both bone and soft tissue sarcoma work. The multimodality approach to MSK tumour imaging provides an invaluable teaching experience for fellows, with excellent scope for research. There is ample exposure to other aspects of MSK radiology, including imaging of sports injuries and joint replacements, ultrasound and interventions, as well as tumour biopsies. In addition, the fellows present at weekly MSK oncology-radiology rounds and multidisciplinary weekly sarcoma rounds.

The fully-digitized radiology department was completely renovated in August 2011 and is equipped with new latest imaging equipment (including LightSpeed VCT and GE 3T MRI).

The department offers a strong, knowledgeable and collegial working team. Staff are dedicated to education, teaching and clinical excellence.
