Mobile x-ray systems (also known as mobile radiographic units) are used for radiographic imaging of patients who cannot be moved to the radiology department and who are in areas—such as intensive care units, operating rooms, and emergency rooms—that lack standard, fixed radiographic equipment.
Mobile X-Ray systems consist of a wheeled cart that transports an x-ray generator (line- or battery-powered transformer), an x-ray tube assembly, and a film cassette or flat-panel detector storage drawer. The x-ray tube assembly, which includes an evacuated glass x-ray tube and collimator, is attached to a tube stand that can be swiveled around its base and/or moved horizontally and vertically to perform radiographic examination of different parts of a patient’s body. Common radiographic exam applications include general radiography and orthopedic, pediatric, skeletal, and abdominal imaging.
Mobile x-ray systems can be either digital or analog based. Digital systems use flat panel detectors to collect the radiographic image while analog systems rely on film cassettes for this purpose. Advantages of digital imaging over film include greater dynamic range, reduced patient radiation exposure, and the ability to integrate with digital picture archiving and communication systems (PACS).
Compared to analog systems, digital x-ray systems also produce higher x-ray tube currents settings that permit shorter exposure times that minimize blurring of the radiographic image (caused by patient or organ movement) and reduce patient exposure to radiation. Analog mobile x-ray units are less expensive than digital, but require computed radiography, or film and film processing-related supplies, equipment and trained staff.
