AIM's full body MRI scan is one hundred per cent free of ionizing radiation. Compare that to a CT scan which exposes the patient to radiation equivalent to 70 X-Rays. Yet, CT is still a common imaging modality in public hospitals. Children are particularly susceptible to ionizing radiation; in fact, childhood exposure to CT scans [...]

Vancouver has become an international leader in cancer research! AIM's Whole Body Diffusion MRI detects cancer in its earliest stages, and the BC Cancer Agency is conducting developmental research on a blood test that should be able to detect early signals of cancer. The study will look at the blood of 1000 participants aged 55-70, all [...]
