Benefits of a Mini CT Scan

How a mini CT scan from your ENT specialists can help you

CT scans, known as computed tomography, or a CAT scan, are used extensively by ENT doctors to diagnose structural issues or medical conditions of the ears, nose, and throat.

The ear, nose, and throat specialists at South Florida ENT Associates provide a wide range of ENT services, including mini CT scans and other imaging services. They have several offices in Hollywood, FL, Weston, Pembroke Pines, Fort Lauderdale, and Boca Raton, FL, to help you.

A mini CT scan is a new type of CT scan which creates high-resolution, 3-D images of the sinuses, temporal bones, and base of the skull.

The mini CT scan offers important benefits when compared to a conventional CT scan. Consider that the mini CT scan:

  • Provides the ability for a faster diagnosis
  • Reduces radiation exposure by producing 90% less radiation than conventional CT scans
  • Can be performed right in the office, with no need to go to another location
  • Saves you time and money because you won’t need multiple, offsite appointments
  • Can also be used on pediatric patients
  • Provides rapid imaging, requiring only about 40 seconds
  • Limits feelings of claustrophobia because patients can be seated during the scan

The mini CT scan has revolutionized CT imaging for ENT patients and doctors. The technology enables a quicker diagnosis, which can lead to more timely treatment and a better treatment outcome.
