An X-ray is an imaging test that creates pictures of the inside of the body. This page provides information about X-ray services at Mackenzie Health.

Mackenzie Health is pleased to provide X-rays on a walk-in basis, with a signed physician requisition, Monday to Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Referring a Patient

A completed diagnostic imaging requisition form must be completed by a physician for patients to be referred for an X-ray at Mackenzie Health.

Please ensure the requisition form includes the referring physician's information and signature, the patient's information and clinical history, and the reason for referral.

To obtain a copy of the requisition form, visit the referral and consent forms page. Physician offices can fax a patient requisition form to 905-883-2043.

How do I prepare for my X-Ray?

Depending on your X-ray, some patients may be advised to change into a hospital gown.

What do I need to do the day of my visit?

Please ensure you bring a valid health card with you along with the signed requisition form from your physician.
