Please welcome another miniaturized tomography system, being announced today: NeuroLogica Corporation‘s new CT scanner is designed for otolaryngology office-based diagnostics.
From the press release:
“With the CereTom OTOscan physicians have a quicker and more convenient path to patient diagnoses,” said Diane Clifford, Director Global Marketing. “Currently it’s a two-step process. Physicians send patients out of the office for a CT scan, and then patients need to schedule a follow-up visit with the physician, once the results from the radiology lab are complete. Now, with the CereTom OTOscan private practices have the capability to scan, diagnose and begin a treatment plan during the first visit, while continuing to foster relationships with their hospital partners by procedural referrals.”
The CereTom OTOscan is a portable eight slice CT scanner that acquires 1.25MM slices per rotation. It is 29 inches long, about five feet tall and four feet wide and weighs approximately 750 pounds. The system’s battery can be recharged in any standard wall outlet and holds enough power to image four to eight patients. The scanner also includes a mini-PACS system that is ideal for use in the physician’s office.
