Mobile X-rays are imaging scans the team at Mobile Doctor Medical Clinic performs from the comfort of your home. The team has invested in digital X-rays to ensure your experience is as fast, comfortable, and safe as possible. Digital X-rays produce lower levels of radiation and higher-quality images than traditional scans.
The team provides convenient, friendly services, whether you live in a single-story home or a third-floor apartment building. With mobile X-rays, you don’t have to worry about traveling to receive the imaging scans you need.
A digital X-ray produces highly accurate images of your body’s internal structures, particularly hard tissues like bone. X-rays emit electromagnetic energy that passes through the body. Dense structures with high atomic numbers appear white in an X-ray image, while soft tissues and fatty areas look gray.
These images allow the team to quickly diagnose fractures, infections, injuries, and calcifications so they can provide treatment as soon as possible.
Mobile X-ray equipment operates on battery-powered units that the team can transport nearly anywhere for patient comfort and convenience.
The Mobile Doctor Medical Clinic uses portable digital X-rays that they can transport to various locations, including your home, work, nursing communities, health facilities, surgery centers, or hospice centers. If you’re unsure whether your residence is accessible for mobile X-rays, contact the team to discuss your needs.
Mobile X-rays are entirely noninvasive and rarely require preparation. Depending on your injury or area of pain, the team may ask you to lie down, sit, or stand during your X-ray. They may also request that you hold your breath temporarily to ensure the images are clear.
Most of these visits take only a few minutes and involve no downtime, so you can resume your normal activities immediately. Some patients experience mild nausea, discomfort, and headaches if their X-rays require a contrast dye, but these symptoms subside within a few hours.
