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

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.
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.
