Portable Packages.pngIf you plan to use digital X-ray for home care, in a residence-style setting, or in an urgent care facility, flexibility, portability, and affordability will be extremely important characteristics for your future system- all of which come along with the choice to use a portable digital X-ray unit. But what about when hospital-grade portables are still too big, too heavy, and too costly? 

The good news is that there are digital portable options that can be transported in even the smallest truck or van. Even more good news: they're scaled for lighter-volume use, so you don't have to pay for the tube and generator capacity of a high-volume hospital system.

The video clip below shows an example of how easy it can be to get up and scanning with a clinic-grade portable X-ray system and digital detector panel. The example you'll see is a SourceRay SR-130 with an 11" x 14" ViewWorks digital detector panel.

Average cost: $50,000 - $60,000

The Takeaway

Regardless of your patient volume, your portability needs, or your budget, there is an X-ray option for you. To learn more about the package you saw above, or any other X-ray question, contact us with the button below and let us know how we can help.
