Mohawk, McMaster collaborate to open new medical imaging centre


Mohawk College and McMaster University are collaborating to open a new facility for training, imaging research, and patient access to magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The Centre for Integrated and Advanced Medical Imaging (CIAMI) will be located at the Mohawk-McMaster Institute of Applied Health Sciences building and offer collaborative, unique models of care and a new model of training for interdisciplinary teams. The centre will have an advanced MRI unit, which will help to expedite training for MRI technologists, and will partner with Hamilton Health Sciences and St Joseph’s Healthcare Hamilton for training using a “living lab.” CIAMI will also use a new approach to cut wait times for those needing MRIs. The Ontario Ministry of Health has made a $5M investment over three years to support the CIAMI model creation, development, and testing.
