At Teleradiology Specialists, we have extensive experience in interpreting X-Rays from Urgent Care centers. In fact, we read X-Ray images for over 1,000 Urgent Care facilities nationwide.

I recently reviewed a series of radiographic images taken on Urgent Care patients utilizing the UC-5000, a new low-power, high-frequency mobile X-Ray system specifically designed for the Urgent Care arena and manufactured by Source-Ray Inc. These patient images included the majority of X-Ray exams that are most common to Urgent Care: chest (PA/Lateral), lumbar spine (PA/Lateral), shoulder, and extremities (arm, hand, ankle and foot). All were direct digital images. The images were of the highest diagnostic quality. Even the chest and lumbar spine X-Ray images, which were taken on patients weighing more than 270 lbs., displayed consistent resolution. I find the quality remarkable considering the images were produced by a lower power unit.

This unit requires only minimal lead shielding and therefore can be utilized in the existing patient exam rooms, making it easier to add X-Ray equipment to existing offices. This flexibility, coupled with excellent quality, makes the Source-Ray UC-5000 an excellent match for the needs of the Urgent Care market.
