Wellington X-Ray and Ultrasound 1 in 9 Canadians will be diagnosed with breast cancer.  Family history or genetic makeup accounts for approximately 5 to 10% of breast cancer.  90% of breast cancer is linked to other factors, including one’s work and home environment.  The goal of the Ontario Breast Screening Program (OBSP) is to screen as many women as possible to find breast cancer at a very early stage to have a better chance for successful treatment and surviving the disease. Wellington X-Ray and Ultrasound provides x-ray, ultrasound and mammography services in the Hamilton Community Health Centre, which is located at 414 Victoria Avenue North.  Wellington X-Ray was approved to be an OBSP imaging centre in December 2016.  The qualifications for OBSP participation include certification with the Canadian Association of Radiologists (CAR) and approval from OBSP.  The Radiologists and technical staff must have continuing education in mammography and are required to perform a minimum number of studies annually to maintain their credentials.
