Nevada ENT and Reno Tahoe Sinus Center are excited to announce that we have just completed installation of a brand new Carestream CS 9300 cone beam CT scanner. Our office has offered in-office CT imaging for the last 7 years, and we recently decided to upgrade to the latest technology. We can image both the paranasal sinuses and temporal bone (ear).
Your doctor will review your images with you immediately after the scan. In addition, the board-certified radiologists at Reno Diagnostic Center will review your scan and send a report to our office.
Advantages of in-office cone beam CT imaging:
- High resolution, down to 0.09mm, for excellent imaging detail
- CBCT radiation dose is much lower than low-dose and standard conventional CT exams (approximately 1/10 of the dose)
- Convenience – imaging can be done in our office without a second trip to an imaging center
- Images can be used for image-guided sinus surgery
We are pleased to offer this new technology to our patients, please do not hesitate to ask your provider for more information.
