Mobile imaging is performed routinely on extremely ill patients in areas such as the trauma unit, ICU and CCU who cannot travel to the main radiography department, patients who cannot be moved due to isolation precautions and patients undergoing surgical procedures. Although mobile imaging will require the same patient positioning skills, the placement of the patient in an uncontrolled environment can make positioning and imaging difficult. The radiographs should be as consistent as possible with similar contrast, density and positioning to ensure an accurate diagnosis.
