Breast Imaging Kingston
Welcome to Breast Imaging Kingston (BIK), a state-of-the-art $7 million facility that is transforming breast health in Southeastern Ontario.
The facility, located in Kingston’s east-end at 820 John Marks Avenue, brings together breast imaging services and procedures from the Hotel Dieu Hospital (HDH) and the former Ontario Breast Screening Program (OBSP) sites under one roof, streamlining care for patients.
BIK offers breast screening as the main point of entry for the majority of patients in the region. Patients will either be referred to the facility by their family doctor or will receive their annual breast screening letter in the mail. If patients require further care, they will be scheduled for more specialized diagnostic options at the facility.
Please note, breast cancer surgery and breast MRI will still be performed at KHSC’s HDH and Kingston General Hospital (KGH) sites.
The BIK team focuses on individuals requiring screening and precision diagnosis of breast cancer and offers:
- 3D digital mammography/mammogram
- Breast ultrasound
- Patient friendly MagSeed breast lesion localizations
- Contrast-enhanced mammography
- Automated breast ultrasound
- Breast biopsy services
This combination of equipment under one roof is unique to all of Canada. BIK also serves as a showcase site for our industry partner and a training hub for physicians and technologists alike.
Kingston Health Sciences Centre would like to thank our two major donors who made this facility possible, the Rose of Hope committee and women from the Cataraqui Golf and Country Club as well as Brit Smith and Homestead Land Holdings.
