Introduction to Institute(SHSC)

Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre (SHSC) is a fully affiliated hospital of the University of Toronto with over 1,250 beds; 677 are dedicated to acute care (of which 125 to intensive care). SHSC includes Canada’s first and largest trauma program and has a dynamic and busy Emergency Department (ED). The Emergency and Trauma Radiology Division (ETRD) is an integral part of the patient services at Sunnybrook, both for the ED population and emergencies of patients admitted to internationally acclaimed specialty programs, including the Tory Trauma Program, Odette Cancer Program, the Schulich Heart Program and the Hurvitz Brain Sciences Program. Sunnybrook also has one of the largest critical care facilities in North America. Therefore, emergency radiologists encounter a broad spectrum of acute conditions: acute (poly-) trauma, neurologic emergencies such as stroke, cardiovascular emergencies, thoracic as well as abdominal emergencies and acute complications in oncology patients.

The department of Medical Imaging at SHSC is currently undergoing the largest upgrade of medical imaging equipment in more than a generation. Installment of 4 new MRI machines has recently been completed and the replacement of 4 CT scanners by state of the art machines has started. The rebuild includes a new multi-station reading room embedded in the ED, from where all acute care imaging will be interpreted 24/7.
