“The MiniCAT scanner is a life saver. We didn’t expect to use it as much as we do, but now it’s a vital diagnostic tool for each of our ENT surgeons. It pays for itself—a week of use pays for a month.”

“Back in 2004, we purchased the very first MiniCAT. That was one of the best decisions we have made! Now we have 4 MiniCATs in our practice. Doctors can almost instantly get a scan to assist in the diagnosis of their patients. They have the ability to call up the scans in the exam room and can show patients a high quality/resolution image of the sinuses or temporal bone and explain what is going on. Having these units definitely has a positive impact on patient care as well as the bottom line.”

“I love the MiniCAT scanner! The images are beautiful. I have worked with the MiniCAT before and it is the best—better than CT’s at the hospital.”

“It was such a breeze implementing CT during these shut-downs—we aren’t as busy, and so getting set up with CT and getting our IAC application submitted was a breeze with Xoran. I would absolutely recommend that ENT practices consider MiniCAT as a way to bring back patients as they are re-opening their practices. Xoran’s preferred financing partners, Highland Capital, offer deferred payments—this option was very attractive for my practice because there was no initial cost outlay when I purchased my MiniCAT.”

“There is nothing mini about Xoran or the MiniCAT. It is a great company and great machine that provides maximum information and quality and will change how you practice, for the better.”

“As a single-physician private practice surgeon, having a MiniCAT at each of the locations where I practice has been an invaluable addition. I’m able to perform the scan on my patients and have the images available immediately—allowing me to see, scan, and diagnose my patients in a single office visit. This quick turn-around means that my patients are more likely to comply with their treatment plan. In this way, my practice has grown, my procedure volume has grown, and my patients get the sinus relief they need more quickly with less hassle.”

Kristin Myers

“Before the MiniCAT, it would be 7-10 days before we had results.”


“Point-of-care imaging represents a modality of service that is in line with the Institute of Medicine’s six dimensions of high quality care; care that is safe, timely, effective, efficient, equitable, and patient centered. CBCT provides greater spatial resolution at a significantly lower level of radiation than a conventional CT scanner.”

Lower radiation is better

While Computed Tomography (CT) scans are often necessary for diagnosis, all CT systems use X-rays, which expose patients to ionizing radiation. Xoran understands the importance of keeping radiation dose low. In designing its CT systems, Xoran follows the ALARA (As Low As Reasonably Achievable) principle, which means that Xoran minimizes radiation dose as much as possible without compromising image quality.

ACE Mode helps to lower radiation dose

MiniCAT’s effective radiation dose has always been a fraction of full-sized CT scanners. Now Xoran’s “ACE Mode” (Automatic Control of Exposure) may further help lower radiation by automatically recommending a scan protocol with a dose based on patient-specific data, in conformance with NEMA XR-29

ACE Mode uses patient-specific data

Xoran’s innovative ACE Mode evaluates patient radiodensity, factors in patient age, and generates a recommended protocol of Small, Medium, or Large.

Doctors decide the protocol

Physicians and health care providers are the decision makers when it comes to which protocol will be used for each patient. They may choose to use the ACE Mode recommended protocol or may “override” the ACE Mode protocol and simply choose a protocol based on the patient’s clinical needs

Point of Care CT Scanner

Confident in your point-of-care CT evaluation process?


We recommend that you use MiniCAT IQ in a room that is at least 6′ x 9′. This size will give you and your patients a little more elbow room, and may minimize or even eliminate the amount of radiation shielding needed. Weighing in at only 450 lbs., MiniCAT IQ installation is quick and efficient, without the need for additional floor reinforcement or room modification.

The MiniCAT IQ scanner system emits very low radiation, and most facilities require minimal shielding to comply with State regulations. Any required shielding is typically included with your purchase. Xoran works with certified medical physicists to ensure that your scanner is safe for patients and staff, and meets all the requirements of your State’s radiation protection agency.

MiniCAT IQ was designed to be easy-to-use, enabling physicians and imaging technicians to be trained in the safe operation of the scanner. Specific state laws govern who may operate CT scanners. Your Xoran Sales Manager will help you determine who may operate the MiniCAT scanner in your state.

MiniCAT IQ scan protocols range from approximately 1/5th to 1/20th of the radiation dose received compared to a conventional sinus CT.

Patient scan protocols are 10-30 seconds, and scanned images are available almost immediately.



Implementing MiniCAT into your practice can save patients 1-2 office visits and weeks of waiting. Stop referring patients out of your office.
