We get a lot of questions about mobile radiology. And we get it, it’s a new concept for most people. One we hope you’ll find is a convenient option to traditional office visits, and is a stress-free way to save time in your day. Here are the answers to your top five questions!
Is mobile radiology the same quality technology as in-hospital or at brick-and-mortar radiology offices?
Yes! Mas Imaging Portable Radiology uses state-of-the-art, hospital-grade equipment for all the modalities we offer. This way, image quality is never sacrificed for convenience, and your provider will get a superior report every time.
Can x-ray radiation be contained in a mobile setting?
Yes! Only 1% of radiation emitted is converted into x-ray photons, the rest is just heat. Mas Imaging Portable Radiology employs experienced technologists who are thoroughly trained in techniques to contain unnecessary radiation exposure during your x-ray exam. And because of the efficiency of the mobile machines, they are able to take quality images in a shorter amount of time than a traditional office could, thereby minimizing exposure even more.
What happens if the weather is bad the day of my appointment?
No problem! Mas Imaging Portable Radiology is a service available to patients 24/7, 365 days a year. Though there are some weather conditions that may be too hazardous for our technologists to travel in – such as mandatory road closures due to hurricanes or blizzards – we will make every effort to keep your appointment even when conditions are less than ideal.
Do you perform background checks on your technicians?
Yes! Your safety is our top priority. Thorough background checks are performed during the pre-hire screening process, and all of our technicians are licensed/certified
What insurance do you accept?
We are always adding new insurances to our list. Right now we accept Medicare, Medicaid, Fidelis, Humana and ChampVA as the primary insurance, and we accept all secondary insurance providers.
Though insurance plans and out-of-pocket deductibles will vary depending on your individual plan, mobile radiology services are covered at nearly the same rate as a traditional brick-and-mortar office visit. And there are no extra fees to you as the patient for using our services. It’s a win/win for everyone!
We also offer private & self-pay options for those who don't have insurance or prefer to pay out of pocket. Please contact our office for prices & options.
