Complete diagnostic imaging
Our focus on health is our commitment
Since its inception in 1989, Quantum has upheld its reputation in the community as a leading health care provider. Our facility is guided by specialized physicians and staffed by highly trained, certified and patient-focused professionals. Each day our outpatient centre services well over 250 patients in need of medical imaging and other diagnostic procedures.
Imaging services we offer include digital radiography, general ultrasound, mammography, musculoskeletal ultrasound, echocardiography, vascular ultrasound and bone mineral densitometry.
Quantum has been a proud affiliate of the Ontario Breast Screening Program (OBSP) since 1999. We also have a registered nurse on site to complement the OBSP screening mammogram experience. In addition, the clinic also takes pride in its continued compliance with the Canadian Association of Radiologists (CAR) Mammography Accreditation Program. Our affiliation with the Scarborough Hospital enables us to elevate our standard of urgent care by referring patients to surgeons in the event of abnormal findings on breast imaging.
Alongside our national certification in Mammography, Quantum has accreditation with the Intersocietal Accreditation Commission (IAC) in Vascular Ultrasound, CorHealth Ontario in Echocardiography and with the Ontario Association of Radiologists (OAR) in Bone Mineral Density.
Medical imaging is an essential tool in a patient’s overall health. Whether it be used for screening, prenatal care, and/or diagnosing illnesses, technology can save lives and improve the quality of life for many patients.
At Quantum we believe that efficiency and quality of service go hand in hand. Patients not only deserve the finest in imaging services with quick turnaround time for appointment and report delivery but patient care that is respectful and responsive to their needs and values.
Comprehensive Imaging Care Is Our Commitment.

Accessibility Compliance Policy
Quantum Medical Imaging Services, Inc. is committed to meeting its current and ongoing obligations under the Ontario Human Rights Code respecting non-discrimination.
Quantum Medical Imaging Services, Inc. understands that obligations under the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005 (AODA) and its accessibility standards do not substitute or limit its obligations under the Ontario Human Rights Code or obligations to people with disabilities under any other law.
Quantum Medical Imaging Services, Inc. is committed to complying with both the Ontario Human Rights Code and the AODA. Quantum Medical Imaging Services, Inc. is committed to excellence in serving all customers including people with disabilities.
Our accessible customer service policies are consistent with the principles below for people with disabilities.
Dignity – provide service in a way that allows the person with a disability to maintain self-respect and the respect of other people.
Independence – a person with a disability is allowed to do things on their own without unnecessary help or interference from others.
Integration – provide service in a way that allows the person with a disability to benefit from the same services, in the same place, and in the same or similar way as other customers, unless a different way is necessary to enable them to access goods, services or facilities.
Equal opportunity – provide service to a person with a disability in such a way that they have an equal opportunity to access our services or facilities as what is given to others.
People with disabilities may use their personal assistive devices when accessing our goods, services or facilities.
An assistive device is a piece of equipment a person with a disability uses to help them with daily living (e.g., an electric scooter, wheelchair, screen reader, hearing aid, cane or walker, an oxygen tank).
When require, additional assistance such as a TTY phone line, escorting to the examination area, providing the key to accessible washroom in the elevator hallway, translation or personal grooming will be integrated as part of our service.
In cases where the assistive device presents a significant and unavoidable health or safety concern or may not be permitted for other reasons, other measures will be used to ensure the person with a disability can access our goods, services or facilities. Other measures such as transferring to another seat, table or examination room with assistance in order to facilitate the required testing.
We will ensure that our staff are trained and familiar with various assistive devices we have on site or that we provide that may be used by patients with disabilities while accessing our services or facilities.
We will communicate with people with disabilities in ways that take into account their disability. This include the following:
The facility should always feel like a welcoming environment to be in. By providing exceptional service, we can learn to offer a better experience for your entire customer base as well.
Our services is accessible. Our facility is equipped with automatic door openers, hallways and doorways are sufficiently wide to accommodate a wheelchair or a walker.
Understand that no disability is the same. Each individual has different needs and different limitations. The best way to understand a person’s needs is to get to know them, and ask questions. Never make an assumption on a person’s disability.
Be patient. Take the time to respond to any needs that may come up.
Speak normally. Speak to an disable person as you would normally to any other patient.
Communicate at the same level. When dealing with a patient in a wheelchair, particularly if the conversation lasts more than a minute or two, don’t force the patient to crane their necks in order to look up. Sit down and speak at eye level, face to face. Not only is this more respectful, it will be more comfortable for everyone.
Don’t assume. Before assisting a patient with a physical task such as reaching for an item or opening a door, always ask– it never hurts.
Hire employees with disabilities. If a position comes up that is suitable for a person having a certain type of disability, our facility will consider the disable person for the position.
We will work with the person with a disability to determine what method of communication works for them.
We welcome people with disabilities and their service animals. Service animals are allowed on the parts of our premises that are open to the public.
When we cannot easily identify that an animal is a service animal, our staff may ask a person to provide documentation (template, letter or form) from a regulated health professional that confirms the person needs the service animal for reasons relating to their disability.
A service animal can be easily identified through visual indicators, such as when it wears a harness or a vest, or when it helps the person perform certain tasks.
A regulated health professional is defined as a member of one of the following colleges:
College of Audiologists and Speech-Language Pathologists of Ontario
College of Chiropractors of Ontario
College of Nurses of Ontario
College of Occupational Therapists of Ontario
College of Optometrists of Ontario
College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario
College of Physiotherapists of Ontario
College of Psychologists of Ontario
College of Registered Psychotherapists and Registered Mental Health Therapists of Ontario

explain why the animal is excluded
discuss with the customer another way of providing goods, services or facilities

the person with a disability
others on the premises

consult with the person with a disability to understand their needs
