Pacific Eye & Ear Specialists and Pacific Neuroscience Institute both have CAT Scan machines to provide ENT specialized CT scanning services directly to our patients. This greatly benefits our patients in terms of :

  • Single Visit Diagnosis
  • Less time off work or school
  • Patient-friendly, open design
  • Lower radiation dose

What is MiniCAT?

The Xoran MiniCAT is a compact, upright volume computed tomography system designed for high-resolution bone window imaging of the sinuses, temporal bones and skull base. MiniCAT provides immediate access to images at the patient’s point-of-care, resulting in a faster diagnosis and treatment.

Common CAT Scans

  • CAT Scan of the Nose and Sinuses
  • CAT Scan for 3-Dimensional image guided surgery
  • CAT scan of the Ear and Temporal Bones
  • CAT scan of the Jaw and Face
  • CAT scan of the Skull

For the Patient

Our patients will enjoy the convenience of more-timely imaging, a faster diagnosis, and the ability to begin their treatment more quickly. MiniCAT™ has a lower radiation dose than conventional (full-body) CT, has a fast scan time (less than 20 seconds), and affords our patients the comfort of sitting upright in an open design, minimizing claustrophobia. Scans are administered by a Certified Radiologic Technologist skilled in the use of CT scanners to provide a high quality scan for the physician and a professional, safe and caring experience for the patient
