About The Xoran MiniCat™ CT Scanner
The Xoran MiniCat™ CT scanner is exam specific, so it can only perform sinus and/or temporal bone CT’s. It gives a lower radiation dose than standard CT’s at hospitals and radiology clinics. The scanner not only gives lower radiation dose but is more comfortable to the patient since they sit up in it rather than lying down.
Sinus CT scans are important for diagnosing sinusitis in people who have had recurrent sinus infections as well as differentiating allergic sinus symptoms from chronic infection.
Having a CT scanner available in the doctor’s office saves patients time and makes diagnosis quicker so that patients can be treated for sinus infections as soon as possible.
The William Storms Allergy Clinic was the first to introduce the Xoran MiniCat™ CT scanner on the front range of Colorado in June 2007. Our CT imaging department is proud to be accredited with the ICACTL after meeting extensive criteria.
