The importance of medical imaging systems is growing day by day owing to their increasing applications in the field of neurology, cardiology and in women’s health. This is also increasing burden on the service providers who are dependent on their fixed imaging modalities, thus arising the need for the mobile medical imaging systems. Mobile imaging services are technologically identical to fixed imaging systems, albeit with some physical differences. The mobile imaging systems are designed to be installed in large vans/trailers that operate as mobile scanning rooms and can be taken to various sites offering extended care. These mobile trailers are outfitted with operator workstations, proper magnetic shielding, and other peripherals for suitable operation. Imaging modalities like mammography, computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and now even positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) are the ones that are used in the mobile trailers in addition to some of the non-imaging modalities such as cardiac catheterization and lithotripsy units. These outsourced radiology imaging services are majorly concentrated in the U.S. and to some extent in Europe. Hospitals largely contribute in adopting these mobile vehicles on rent for a short period of time and accordingly perform procedures on patients.
