MiniCAT ™ CT Scans provide In-office diagnosis-Speeds Up Your Diagnosis and Treatment
We understand that your time is valuable and that suffering with sinus and ear problems can rob you of that valuable time. We are committed to providing you with the highest quality, most efficient care possible so that you get fast, effective relief.
One way we do that is by making sure we have the most advanced diagnostic technology available to expedite your diagnosis. One of the tools used for diagnosing sinus- and ear-related problems is a computed tomography (CT or CAT) scanner. CT scanners create three-dimensional x-ray images of the anatomy, giving physicians valuable information for an accurate diagnosis.
Until recently, physicians had to send patients to hospitals or imaging centers for sinus or ear scans taken on large, donut-shaped full body CT scanners. Having these tests performed off-site caused delays in diagnosis and treatment. By using the latest advancements in CT technology, however, our doctors can now take sinus and ear CT scans in our office with the Xoran MiniCAT scanner.
Our Xoran® MiniCAT scanner is a small, upright CT scanner that creates fast, exceptional quality images of the sinuses and ears. You can be comforted that the Xoran MiniCAT not only optimizes image quality but minimizes radiation dose in accordance with ALARA (As Low As Reasonably Achievable). For more information on radiation dose, visit www.xorantech.com. Because a MiniCAT scanner is located in our office, your doctor can take your CT scan during your examination.
