The Xoran MiniCAT™ is a compact, upright CT scan system that offers immediate access to images for an on-the-spot diagnosis and quicker treatment. It was created specifically for in-office use, and provides a number of benefits over conventional CT scanners.
Benefits of MiniCAT™
Traditional CT scan machines are big and bulky, and require the patient to lie down on a narrow table, where they are often strapped in order to help them stay in position. The table moves through a doughnut-shaped hole called a gantry, where images of the body are taken. Many individuals report feelings of claustrophobia or discomfort. Images may be sent to a radiologist for interpretation, causing a delay in results.
The Xoran MiniCAT™, by contrast, offers unparalleled convenience and flexibility. It allows the patient to sit upright comfortably in an open design. Each scan takes no more than 40 seconds, and exposes the patient to much lower doses of radiation. It delivers high-resolution images of the sinuses, temporal bones, and base of the skull instantly, eliminating the need to outsource the scan for evaluation. This results in the ability to offer an immediate diagnosis, and allows for faster treatment. The machine is compatible with the majority of image-guided surgery systems, and enables the physician to save data electronically or print out images and customized reports, leading to better patient compliance. If additional analysis is required, images can be transmitted to teleradiology services.
Comfort, convenience, and instant results make the Xoran MiniCAT™ a versatile, patient-friendly imaging scanner.
