Important: MGH construction affects patients with medical imaging appointments

A major construction project to modernize the Nuclear Medicine Department at the Montreal General Hospital is advancing on schedule. 

As of May 30, 2022, the main corridor in the Radiology Department leading to the CT Scan and MRI Services (D5) will be closed. This closure will have an impact on patients with medical imaging appointments. A detour will be in place for all patients (inpatients and outpatients) for the duration of the project.    

The MUHC has taken steps to minimize inconveniences

Access will be via the new non-invasive cardiology service. Signage will clearly indicate the new route and staff in the radiology reception area will help redirect patients. In addition, the volunteer department will assist with patient flow.   

PET Services relocated to Glen site

The corridor closure is the latest phase in the ongoing renovation project to the diagnostic services area on the D5 floor at the MGH (Radiology and Nuclear Medicine/Positron Emission Tomography). To maintain accessibility, the Nuclear Medicine and PET departments have been temporarily relocated to the Glen site.
