MRI Innovation Brings Better Choices, Better Outcomes and Lower Costs

In just 6 months, private MRIs have saved Saskatchewan taxpayers $835,000 and helped reduce the public waitlist by more than 10 per cent.  Saskatchewan patients now have the freedom to choose to get their private scans here in Saskatchewan instead of having to travel to Alberta or North Dakota.

Our government continues to invest in the public system to provide timely and high quality medical imaging services while private-pay MRI services are growing.  Building on this success, we are now working on giving Saskatchewan people the choice to purchase CT scans in the province as well.
