We are proud to offer a new technology in CT scans to our patients. The MiniCAT is the first compact CT scanner created specifically for in office use. Our practice is one of the first in the area to have this technology.
The MiniCAT is a compact, upright CT scanner that delivers high-resolution images of the sinuses, temporal bones, and base of the skull. It is quick and versatile, providing instant access to images, which allows for immediate treatment.
With our CT scanner, the patient sits comfortably upright in an open design, minimizing claustrophobia. A scan takes only 40 seconds for adults and 20 seconds for children, with a significantly lower radiation dose than sinus scans taken in other settings. A high resolution, digitally versatile CT image is then immediately available on our computer monitor. With this instant, onsite CT scanner, we can accelerate diagnosis and treatment – there is no need to outsource scans for evaluation. The sooner the patient begins treatment, the faster he or she will feel better.
