ASAP is committed to providing you with the best medical care possible. As part of this commitment, we utilize the Carestream CS 9300 point-of-care CT system in our practice. This system provides a number of benefits to our patients, including the following:
- High-resolution CT scans available immediately: our doctors can view anatomical structures with unprecedented detail
- Immediate, Accurate Diagnosis and Treatment. The CS 9300 offers state-of-the-art technology to help us accurately diagnose and deliver treatment, all without having to leave our practice.
- Detailed CT scans allow our team to clearly view sinus and ear structures in order to devise an appropriate treatment plan and answer any questions patients have about their care and treatment options.
- Less radiation: patient health and safety is our practice’s greatest concern
- Because the CS 9300 utilizes cone beam CT technology, patients are exposed to significantly less radiation than with conventional CT exams.
- By using a lower radiation dose, our CT system helps us adhere to the ALARA Principle – or, “As Low As Reasonably Achievable” – which we follow to ensure every precaution is taken to minimize patient exposure to radiation.
- Comfortable positioning: the system’s open design makes exams more comfortable
- Featuring an open design, patients typically find scans performed on the CS 9300 more comfortable than conventional CT exams.
- Patients can stand, sit, or remain in their wheelchair during the exam.
- Increased Patient Convenience.
- Our practice can perform CT scans in house, saving you valuable time. The CS 9300 reduces the need for patients to schedule a separate visit to hospital radiology departments or imaging centers, and can reduce required office visits.
- The cost of having a CT scan performed in-house is sometimes less than having scans performed at the hospital or in an outside imaging center.
The CS 9300 system provides ASAP with the state-of-the-art technology necessary to help our practice make more accurate diagnoses and deliver treatment with unprecedented confidence. We are here to provide patients with consistently remarkable healthcare. If you have any questions regarding technologies employed by our practice, please feel free to contact us.
