The need for point of care diagnostics has led to the invention of portable X-ray devices. These devices can be used by military men and on the sports field. They are very useful when the treatment has to be completed in a short duration of time. The devices can be folded in a small package whenever a need for transportation arises and can be attached to the computer in the X-ray lab and the images can be directly viewed on the monitor. The portable devices help in the reduction of imaging costs by eliminating the use of X-ray films. The images can be directly sent to the physician in the form of a soft copy.
