From start to finish the whole appointment should take 15-30 minutes. The scan will be complete in 18-28 seconds. We use SafeBeam Technology for automatic dose exposure. The SafeBeam technology automatically adjusts the radiation dosage according to the patient's age and size. As a result, radiation exposure for this type of scan is minimal. It is equivalent to being outside for 6 days or 1/10 of a chest CT scan.
The scan is only of your head and neck allowing you to stay fully clothed. You will have to remove all metal from your head and neck including metal dentures, glasses and all jewelry.
Payment for scans are due after the scan has concluded. Patient is responsible for payment unless otherwise indicated by your doctor. All forms of payment are accepted. There is a cancellation fee unless notified 24 hours in advance.
The images will be sent to your doctor to be evaluated. If you wish to retain a copy for yourself, please request at time of scan.
