The CereTom OTOscan is an in-office CT scanner optimized for Otolaryngology that bridges the gap between flat panel dental scanners commonly used in ENT offices and more expensive fixed CT scanners found in hospitals and imaging centers. Offering compact size, low dose, low scatter and comprehensive functionality, this CT scanner provides high quality images of both bone and soft tissue at an affordable price. Designed for in-office use, its images are compatible with commonly used surgical navigation systems, making it ideal for pre-op planning and post-op imaging. 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.
