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.
