Cone Beam CT Scanner Technology
Fairfax ENT is proud to announce the availability of in-office CT scanning for patients at its office. We are the only ENT office in Northern Virginia with this new technology that provides a low radiation dose and in office convenience.
The 3D Accuitomo 170 ENT is Morita’s most advanced cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) scanner. This device delivers an unparalleled level of high-definition image clarity, which is crucial for comprehensive medical evaluations.
Scans are acquired right in the office, reducing the need for follow-up visits to a hospital or imaging center, which often lead to reduced out-of-pocket patient expenses.
This scanner’s ability to produce high resolution, contrast rich imagery is unmatched. It takes only a single rotation around the head of the patient for the scanner to create such a detailed image. This is especially helpful for examining the patient’s head and neck region, including the temporal bone and sinuses.
The best part about this scanner is that it is able to produce state-of-the-art diagnostic images and at the same time reduce a patient’s unnecessary exposure to radiation. During a standard 18-second exposure, this scanner exposes patients to one-seventh the amount of X-rays as a conventional CT scan.
