The physicians of Shea Ear Clinic are committed to providing the most state-of-the-art, cost-effective and safe services to our patients. That is why we have installed a Xoran MiniCAT ™ Scan machine within our facility. Our in-office Xoran MiniCAT™ for ENT scanner gives us immediate access to high-quality, 3D images of your sinuses and ears, allowing us to diagnose and treat you faster and more efficiently.
CT scans are integral to proper diagnosis and treatment. Studies have indicated that on- site scanning can change the initial diagnosis in up to 75% of cases. Our in-office scanner offers distinct advantages over sending you to a radiology center for the scan. The advantages include:
By having you sitting in a chair for only 20 seconds, your Shea Ear Clinic physician can show you a picture of your ears and/or sinuses on a computer while explaining your condition. The next steps in your treatment plan can be agreed upon right away. And the faster you begin your treatment, the faster you can get relief from your symptoms.
We constantly strive to enhance patient care and convenience. Through the intelligent use of advanced technology administered by our highly qualified staff, the MiniCAT CT Scanner assists us with providing you with the patient care you deserve.
