We are committed to advancing medical imaging, image-guided therapeutics, and radiation medicine in the Ottawa Region, nationally and internationally.

We combine our leadership in innovation, scholarship, and simulation training with our unique geographic location and industry partnerships to advance the dissemination of best practices, contribute to better clinical outcomes, and deliver compassionate, high-quality, patient-centered care.

We believe in the dignity of our patients, learners, trainees, and team members. Through interdisciplinary and inter- and intra-institutional collaboration, we cultivate an environment of excellence in research and teaching, driving continuous self-improvement and leading-edge care important to our patients and their loved ones.
