“We’re going to have you get a CT of your sinuses done.” And with that, you’re off to make an appointment at a different facility, get your CT completed, wait for the results to get back to your physician and then… finally find out your results. Isn’t there an easier way? YES!
In-office CT scanning done right in our Texas ENT Specialists offices!
The Xoran MiniCAT is designed to provide high-resolution images of the sinuses at a low-dose of radiation. The MiniCAT is more comfortable, accessible and convenient than the large, multi-purpose full-body CT scanners found in hospitals and imaging centers. It also allows us to serve you better; by offering this service at our offices, we can diagnose your problem and begin your treatment plan as soon as possible.
If you have ever had a CT scan before, you’ll notice a difference right away. Rather than being sent off-site to another facility to have the scan performed, the in-office MiniCAT creates instant, high-quality, 3D images of the sinuses for accurate diagnosis during your office visit. That means no waiting rooms. The scanner’s unique design allows scans to be performed while the patient is in a comfortable seated position rather than lying on a bench, which also means it is wheelchair accessible. The scan itself takes only 40 seconds for adults and children as compared to 15 minutes for conventional CT scanners.
Our patients’ safety is of primary concern. A full sinus scan for an adult on our MiniCAT CT scanner exposes patients to 82% less radiation than a conventional CT sinus scan. We are committed to providing you with the highest quality, most efficient care possible so that you get fast, safe, and effective relief.
We currently offer in-office CT scanning in the following locations:
