New Orleans, LA (PRWEB) February 04, 2016
GNO Snoring and Sinus, the New Orleans area experts in office based treatments for sleep apnea and sinusitis, has acquired a new CT Scanner for their practice, revolutionizing treatment and providing a number benefits to patients and doctors alike. The device, called the CS 9300, produces highly-detailed images to help the doctors at GNO Snoring and Sinus offer quicker and more accurate diagnoses, improve treatment planning and provide better overall patient care.
“Our new in-office CT Scanner combines the advantages of high resolution and relatively low radiation dose with the convenience of in-house CT scans,” said Dr. Akash Anand of GNO Snoring and Sinus. “Using this unit enables our practice to dramatically enhance the accuracy of our diagnoses and the ability to treat our patients, especially those coming from distant parts of the Gulf South. The entire diagnostic process is accomplished in one visit. Patients no longer need to schedule a separate visit for their CT Scan.”
Featuring state-of-the-art technology, the CS 9300 allows GNO Snoring and Sinus to clearly view sinus and ear structures, improving their ability to develop appropriate treatment plans and answer any questions that patients may have about their care and treatment options. Furthermore, patients are able to view their images alongside their doctor, increasing their understanding of the unique nature of their sleep or sinus disorder.
“Because our CT Scanner utilizes cone beam CT technology, our patients are exposed to significantly less radiation than with conventional CT scans,” said Dr. Anand. “It also allows us to adhere to the ALARA (As Low As Reasonably Achievable) principle, which we follow to minimize patient exposure to radiation.”
Other benefits associated with the change to the CS 9300 CT Scanner include increased patient comfort and convenience. Featuring an open-faced design, the CS 9300 unit allows patients to stand, sit or remain in their wheelchair during the exam to improve their overall experience. And, because the scans are performed in-house, patients no longer need to schedule a separate visit to a hospital radiology department or imaging center—reducing the number of office visits as well.
