Mobile Imaging Vehicles

Supplement your healthcare offering with flexible mobile imaging and mammography vehicles. Take your imaging services to the patients who really need them or use the vehicle to decrease wait times inside your facility.

A mobile imaging vehicle can be an incredible tool for a facility and a community. Having mobile imaging and mammography equipment on wheels means that imaging services can go to underserved parts of the region. The vehicle provides a comfortable place for overflow patients to get ultrasounds, mammographies, or MRIs completed, and it can act as a temporary service location in case of damage, construction, or renovations in the main facility. 

At Summit Bodyworks, we are committed to delivering state-of-the-art imaging vehicles for hospitals, clinics, and facilities across the United States. We work closely with major suppliers of medical equipment throughout the country to provide you with modern technology that will last long into the future. 

Our vehicles come in multiple sizes, lengths, and options, and our teams include project managers, designers, engineers, and certified installation professionals to ensure that each custom vehicle we produce is completed under the highest standards. Even after delivery, our service doesn’t end there.

  • Cutting-Edge Technology

    In a mobile imaging vehicle, nothing is more important than the technology. That’s why we employ a team of certified emergency vehicle technicians to implement state-of-the-art technology and mammography equipment in each vehicle we create, ensuring that your unit is up to the latest standards.

  • Patient Comfort

    Getting an X-ray, ultrasound, or mammogram can be scary for patients. It’s our job to make patients as comfortable as possible with practical floor plans that allow them to relax before, during, and after the imaging process.

  • Meaningful Storage Space

    Every square inch is important in a mobile vehicle. Clutter can do more than get on your team’s nerves; it can actually reduce productivity and cause costly slowdowns. At Summit Bodyworks, each of our vehicles is built with innovative storage space for easy access and improved organization.

  • Vehicle Style Choices

    We build on a wide range of high-quality chassis and trailers. No matter what length or size of vehicle you need, we can manufacture it for you. Even if we don’t have the right size in stock, we can custom-make your vehicle to ensure that it meets your needs.

  • Premium Workmanship

    At Summit Bodyworks, we are committed to customer satisfaction. Each vehicle that we build is crafted to the highest-quality standards to ensure a long-lasting build. And our service doesn’t stop once you drive off our lot. We’ll work closely with you to make certain that your vehicle performs for years to come.

Hybrid and all-electric solutions are available for many of our vehicle applications.

Going electric is a great way to increase efficiency and save on costs. As an industry leader in all-electric solutions, we offer custom, innovative solutions that are better for the environment AND your bottom line.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are mobile imaging vehicles used for?

Mobile imaging vehicles are used to provide healthcare services outside the physical location of a clinic, hospital, or doctor’s office. A healthcare facility may incorporate mobile imaging vehicles for a few different reasons. There may be underserved regions in the community where patients are too far away or do not have the resources to reach the lab in person. The vehicles may also be used to offset a lack of space or deal with overflow problems inside the facility, decreasing the wait time for ultrasounds, X-rays, and CT scans. 

In addition, mobile imaging vehicles can be a cost-saving measure, cutting back on the capital that would be spent on new construction, building maintenance, or renovations. They can also act as temporary pop-up services when parts of the main building are undergoing maintenance or renovations.

What should be included in a mobile imaging vehicle?

Mobile imaging vehicles can be used as a complement or extension to existing services at a healthcare facility. The features included in the vehicle will vary depending on the specific function of the healthcare facility and its goals for the mobile vehicle. That said, many mobile imaging vehicles are used to provide routine health check-ups, perform ultrasounds, X-rays, and mammograms, monitor and treat work-related injuries, and provide treatment and diagnosis for existing medical conditions.

Though the function of a mobile imaging vehicle is not far removed from that of an ambulance or mobile lab, the design has some important differences. Mobile imaging vehicles may be outfitted with X-ray and radiology equipment, ultrasounds, MRIs, CT and PETs, and more. The design of the vehicle should be concentrated around the inclusion of technology and the proper equipment.

What types of vehicles are used for mobile imaging?

Mobile imaging vehicles can be built on top of a variety of chassis. At Summit Bodyworks, we can build on a variety of platforms, including the Mercedes Benz Sprinter, Ford Transit, Ram Promaster, MT45 or MT55 step-van trucks, commercial RV platforms, cab and chassis, cutaway vans, and trailers. Step-van trucks come in lengths of 16 to 24 feet. Cab and chassis platforms are available in 16- to 28-foot lengths, and cutaway vans come in lengths between 14 and 18 feet.

Our trailers come in three styles: tag-pull, gooseneck, and semi-trailer. The tag-pull trailers are available in lengths that range from 16 to 32 feet. Gooseneck trailers come in 28- to 48-foot lengths, and semi-trailers come in a 53-foot length, though they are also available in custom lengths.

What are important considerations for a mammography vehicle build-out?

One important consideration for building a mammography vehicle is the technology and electronics that must be installed. The designers working on the vehicle must be well-versed in modern technology practices, and they must be able to design a vehicle with the proper equipment plug-ins and setup. It’s also important to consider patron flow. How will patients enter the vehicle? Is there a wheelchair lift or ramp to accommodate patients who have certain disabilities? Is there a seating area inside for patients who are waiting for their turn? 

Finally, manufacturers who specialize in mobile mammography build-outs should work closely with major suppliers of medical equipment. This will allow them to take into consideration the specific needs of a vehicle and provide their clients with a high-quality product that will last for years to come.

How large are mobile imaging vehicles?

Mobile imaging vehicles vary in length, depending on the specific needs of the healthcare facility or imaging facility. In general, mobile imaging vehicles can range anywhere from 14 to 53 feet in length, though many manufacturers are able to offer custom builds to accommodate different needs. At Summit Bodyworks, we offer mobile imaging vehicles in a variety of lengths. Our step van trucks come in lengths of 16 to 24 feet. We also build on cab and chassis platforms in lengths that range between 16 and 28 feet, and our cutaway vans come in lengths starting at 14 feet, with the longest being 18 feet. Our tag-pull trailers range from 16 to 32 feet long, and our gooseneck trailers are available in lengths between 28 and 48 feet. Finally, our largest option is the semi-trailers, which come at a standard length of 53 feet.
