Director Operations – MIC Medical Imaging


MIC started as Medical Imaging Consultants in 1996 with the merger of four local radiology groups. Now we are Alberta’s largest radiology partnership. We have 96 radiologists with diverse sub-specialties and areas of expertise and over 350 technologists and support staff.

MIC is an expert and trusted partner to Edmonton and area primary care practitioners and specialists.

MIC radiologists play an essential role in eight Edmonton area hospitals, providing diagnostic imaging at the Ft. Saskatchewan, Grey Nuns, Mazankowski Heart Institute, Royal Alexandra, Stollery Children’s, Strathcona Community, Sturgeon General, Leduc Community and University hospitals.

The specialists at these hospitals trust our radiologists to provide expert advice and recommendations in a wide range of sub-specialties.

MIC is proud to be able to extend the same expert level of diagnostic imaging to practitioners and patients through our 12 community-based clinics located in Edmonton, St. Albert, Ft. Saskatchewan and Sherwood Park (soon to be 13). Our radiologists take a collaborative approach and draw on our ‘in-house’ expertise when reviewing scans and dealing with complex conditions.

MIC is dedicated to making a difference in the lives of our patients, from the moment the patient speaks to one of our Booking agents, through to the quality of the care we provide at a patient’s appointment. And while the patient may not meet the radiologist during their appointment, the radiologist is involved in the patient’s medical imaging from start to finish.
