** If you have a valid provincial health card, there is no charge to you, with the exception of Quebec residents or non-Canadian residents.
If you are not sure if your exam is covered, please ask our Central Booking agents.

At VIRNA, we provide Vascular and Interventional Radiology (IR) services that help patients recover faster than with traditional, more invasive surgical options. Interventional Radiologists invented angioplasty and the catheter-delivered stent, and are pioneers in minimally invasive treatments. Today, IR is an exciting, surgery-free alternative to a wide range of surgical treatments.Learn More
