Home health provides radiology services in the home-setting for the elderly and chronically ill. It is useful for obtaining basic X-rays of the chest, pelvis and extremities, and avoid the risk of falls or infection associated with transportation and hospitalization. Light, portable X-ray units can be easily transported to the home. The procedure is performed by an experienced technician and the X-ray images are sent electronically to radiologists who interpret them and send a report to your doctor. There is no waiting time involved and you are more relaxed in your familiar surroundings.
