Office-Based CT Scanning: How Does It Work?

Patient Sitting and Getting a CT Scan Taken

Establishing a proper care plan for treating your sinus or other sleep concerns is dependent on making an accurate diagnosis. ADVENT’s approach to CT (computerized tomography) scanning takes the inconvenience of a hospital visit and unnecessarily long wait times out of the equation.

At ADVENT, we offer state-of-the-art, office-based CT scanning technology to make comfort and convenience our top priority. In fact, in 2021, we upgraded every ADVENT clinic with brand new, lightning-fast CT scanners. What do these new CT scanners mean for you?

  • Your CT scan only takes about 15 seconds
  • You get approximately 90% less radiation than a conventional sinus CT
  • You get your results within minutes at the same appointment

Let’s cover the basics of a CT scan:

What is a CT Scan?

A CT scan combines a series of X-ray images from different angles around your head. It uses a computer process to create cross-section images of your bones, blood vessels, and soft tissue.

How is a CT Scan Different Than an X-Ray?

A CT scan combines a series of X-ray images. A CT scan provides a diagnostic examination of your head’s internal structure, where an X-ray is used to detect dislocations and fractures of the bone, as well as to detect cancers and pneumonia.
