MiniCAT™ Instant CT™ Imaging system
Synergy ENT Specialists continues to offer the most-cutting-edge, state-of-the-art technology to its patients. We feature an in-house MiniCAT™ Instant CT™ Imaging system. In fact, Synergy ENT Specialists was the first practice in the state of Missouri to offer this system. This allows our experienced physicians to quickly and conveniently diagnose your condition. A MiniCAT™ scan takes only 40 seconds for adults, just 20 seconds for children, and is entirely non-invasive.
CT scanners create 3-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.
MiniCAT™ scans are comfortable and quick:
- You sit comfortably upright in the scanner chair
- We position your head
- We start the scan
- Overhead gantry makes a single rotation around your head
- Adult scans take 40 sec. and pediatric scans take 20 sec.
