In-office CT imaging, or “computer tomography,” is a specially designed x-ray system that can effectively, accurately, and thoroughly evaluate obstructions in your sinuses. During the procedure, precise scans of your internal nasal structures will be related to our ENT doctors, who can then prepare a customized treatment plan to address your symptoms.
The CT Scan Experience
Prior to your CT imaging session, you may receive special instructions regarding abstaining from eating or drinking. This will ensure the highest quality images are produced. Before being scanned by the machine, you’ll need to remove all jewelry and earrings and don a hospital robe.
Once you are comfortably positioned on the treatment table, you will be moved back and forth underneath the machine several times to capture the best photos. Afterward, you can return to your normal activities right away with no side effects of any kind. Your ENT provider will analyze the images and use them to create a comprehensive treatment plan that addresses your ailments.
