June 27th marks PTSD awareness day, a condition that currently affects approximately 12 million people in the United States. Although mostly associated with combat veterans, PTSD is a condition that can impact any person of any age after experiencing or witnessing a traumatic event, including severe accidents, violence, natural disasters or loss. Stress reactions such as upsetting memories, feeling on edge, having trouble sleeping, experiencing nightmares or heightened reactions to name a few can often impact a person’s quality of life and create challenges that impede their routines. This can include reluctance to leave the house, get into a vehicle or be around crowds. And while available treatments are very effective, recovery from these experiences can sometimes take months or even years, depending on the severity of the incident.
Mas Imaging Portable Radiology can help those experiencing the symptoms of PTSD – whether you’ve been diagnosed or not. Because we can meet the patient where they are, and provide hospital-quality radiology services in the comfort of their own home, there’s no need to worry about transportation or even leaving the bedroom. The patient can stay where they feel the most comfortable, and we will bring the equipment to them to ensure they are receiving quality care. This allows them to continue to focus on their recovery in an environment that makes them feel safe.
Services include ultrasounds, x-rays, EKGs, echocardiograms and doppler studies. Appointments are available 24/7, 365 days a year in order to accommodate everyone’s personal needs. To ease financial concerns, we are in network with Medicare, Medicaid, Fidelis, Humana & ChampVA and take most secondary insurances as well. Both male and female technologists are available, and we’ll do our best to accommodate your preference.
How does it work?
Step 1: Test is ordered - Either your healthcare provider will order the test with us directly, or they will provide you with an order form.
Step 2: Appointment is scheduled - If we receive an order from your healthcare provider, we'll contact you to schedule your appointment on a day/time that's convenient for you. You'll be given a two-hour arrival window for the technologist. Same-day or "stat" appointments are available.
Step 3: Technologist is dispatched - Our certified, professional technologists will arrive at your location within the two-hour window, and will use all safety precautions to perform your exam within the comfort of your environment.
Step 4: Reports are provided - Your healthcare provider will receive your report, either via our online portal, fax or CD. Reports are generally available between 30 minutes to a few hours, but always within 24 hours of your test completion.
We believe in straightforward, simple professionalism, and aim to make your entire experience as convenient and comfortable as possible, while providing you with the level of care you deserve.
