PERRY — A former radiology technician accused of improperly entering negative results on mammograms at Perry Hospital is free on a $50,000 bond but on house arrest.
Rachael Michelle Rapraeger, 30, of Macon, was released from the Houston County jail on bond Monday afternoon, said Houston County sheriff’s Maj. Charles Holt, who oversees the operation of the jail.
She is on house arrest as part of the bond agreement.
Rapraeger is accused of entering negative results for 1,289 mammograms at Perry Hospital that were not read by a radiologist from Jan. 22, 2009, to April 1, 2010. Of the 1,289 mammograms entered as negative, 10 were actually positive, prosecutors said.

Rapraeger was indicted Sept. 7 by a Houston County grand jury on 10 felony counts of computer forgery and 10 counts of misdemeanor reckless conduct.
The bond was conditioned on Rapraeger being on electronic monitoring, that she have no contact with any of the alleged victims and that she may not work or volunteer in any medical or health-related areas.
She also was banished from Houston County as part of the agreement while on bond, except for court appearances and appointments related to the electronic monitoring.
