About The Imaging Centre
The Imaging Centre (TIC) is a joint venture between several associates including The Bahamas Heart Centre (BHC), The Bahamas Imaging Centre (BIC), The Bahamas Imaging Centre: Nuclear Division (BICND), The CT Centre (CTC) and The Breast Centre (TBC) at The Medical Pavilion Bahamas as well as The Bahamas Interventional Cardiology Centre (BICC) at Doctors Hospital.
These independent, yet associated imaging centres all lend their imaging capabilities to the support of screening, diagnostic and therapeutic strategies in the management of various pathologies, especially cardiovascular disease and cancer, thereby lending major support to the primary entities of The Pavilion, especially The Heart and Cancer Centres.
MAJOR MILESTONES FOR THE IMAGING CENTRE
- July 1990: The Bahamas Heart Centre and Non-Invasive Cardiac Imaging;
- January 1994: The Bahamas Imaging Centre and General Radiology and Ultrasonography;
- July 1994: The Bahamas Imaging Centre, Nuclear Division and SPECT Nuclear Imaging (Cardiology and Medicine);
- March 1996: The Bahamas Interventional Cardiology Centre with Invasive and Interventional Imaging;
- January 2004: The CT Centre with High Resolution CT Imaging and many new techniques;
- April 2005: The Bahamas Heart Centre and MicroVoltage T-Wave Alternans Testing (MTWA) for Sudden Death Syndrome
- April 2008: The Breast Centre with Digital Mammography and Breast Ultrasound Program.
The Imaging Centre is planning to close its comprehensive loop of imaging modalities with both an Open MRI Scanner and PET Scanning under consideration.
At The Imaging Centre, each referral is treated as an Imaging Consultation. The Centre has also been an innovator in The Bahamas and Caribbean with the introduction of telemedicine and teleradiology, particularly with its nuclear medicine and cardiology programs, all the way back in 1994. This remains an integral part of our imaging support with continued enhancements expected over the years to come.
