What To Expect During Your In-Office CT Scan
We know the inability to breathe or sleep well interferes with your ability to enjoy your day-to-day, leaving you feeling miserable and left out of your own life. You deserve to breathe freely. However, finding the proper treatment to get you there depends on making an accurate diagnosis. There’s no better tool for determining what is going on inside your sinuses than an in-office CT scan.
Our in-office CT scan takes a good thing and makes it even better: less radiation, faster speed, higher resolution.
As before, you sit upright in an open environment. The radiation is 94 percent less than conventional CT systems. The digital images are ideal for visualizing the sinuses and the fine bony structures of the face.
Because our scanners are office-based, results are available for our Sinus and Sleep Surgeon to review with you during your visit, without delays.
The goal of the CT scan is to collect a series of X-ray images from different angles around your head. The CT scan uses a computer process to create cross-section images of your bones, blood vessels and soft tissue. With this information, we can make an accurate diagnosis and then create a proper care plan for treating your sinus or other sleep issues.
With our state-of-the-art, office-based CT scanning technology, it has never been easier to complete a CT scan. Since our CT scanners are office-based, your results are ready within moments. The actual screening only takes 90 seconds to complete!
It is easy to prepare for your CT scan. All you will need to do is make sure to remove all metal jewelry, piercings, and hair clips at chin level or higher.
During that same visit, you’ll review your results of the scan with a physician who helps guide you in establishing a proper care plan and back on track to living better.
