 X-Radiation Imaging (X-Ray)

Our Portable X-Ray equipment is the latest and state-of-the-art. Our machine is the only digital X-Ray unit of its kind on the west coast. It utilizes the CXDI-50G Portable Digital Radiography flat panel detector which produces a superior image using approximately half the radiation dose of "CR" digital X-Ray machines. With this panel we get an instant image on the screen.

 Electrocardiogram (EKG)

Our EKG machine is a Nihon Kohden EKG, which produces an 8x10 EKG with a computer interpretation. This interpretation can be over-read by a cardiologist. The EKG is faxed to the ordering doctor and is also available on our PACs.


In Home X-Ray & EKG Requirements Criteria:

  • All X-Rays need the prior approval of the patient's physician. Faxed orders are accepted. Fax: 530-605-0517
  • Is there room in the patients home? Our X-Ray machines are 25" wide - so doorways and pathways in the home must be wide enough.
  • If the exam is a hip, spine or abdomen X-Ray, the patient must be lying down.
  • We cannot X-Ray a patient in a waterbed.
  • Chest X-Rays and most extremities may be facilitated while the patient is sitting in a chair.
  • We can take our machines up small flights with only a few stairs. We cannot transport up a larger flight of stairs.
  • For our convenience and if at all possible, avoid clothes or bras with snaps and/or buttons.
