Visit Our Downtown Toronto Ultrasound Clinic

TCFMI offers a wide array of Ultrasound exams

We welcome new patients that are looking to schedule an ultrasound at our downtown Toronto clinic. Please call us at 416-368-8488 to speak to a receptionist and have your appointment scheduled.

As ultrasound images are acquired digitally, your images can be provided to you on a CD, so you can take them to your referring physician or specialist, if necessary. We can also provide our obstetric patients with a copy of their baby’s images on CD at a nominal charge.

What is Ultrasound First?

Ultrasound First is an endeavor devoted to education and increasing awareness of the effectiveness of ultrasound in enhancing patient care.

For appropriate clinical conditions, ultrasound offers clear safety and economic advantages over radiographic exams, and yet evidence suggests that ultrasound is underutilized.

Many clinicians are unaware of the range of conditions for which ultrasound first is an established guideline, and the gap only grows larger as research extends ultrasound’s diagnostic value.

Consider the benefits…

Safe – Ultrasound emits NO ionizing radiation. It may be all you need.

Effective – Ultrasound has comparable or superior diagnostic capability in a growing number of imaging scenarios making it the smart diagnostic choice.

Affordable – Ultrasound is an inexpensive and portable tool that can provide faster diagnosis. Image more for less.
