The procedure is a fast and painless in-office procedure, lasting under 40 seconds. Additionally, MiniCAT™ scans have a significantly lower radiation dose than sinus and ear scans taken on full-body scanners in the hospital. Thanks to the same-day diagnosis, MiniCAT™ can also help minimize insurance co-pays.
Plus, patients in a MiniCAT™ sit upright and are not confined to a full-body tube, minimizing claustrophobia. And with immediate imaging, we can offer a faster diagnosis and begin your treatment sooner.
Patients that require a CT scan will sit comfortably upright in a chair while an overhead arm makes a single rotation around their head. Within seconds, the CT scan will appear on the doctor’s computer monitor for faster diagnosis and treatment.
