May 1, 2007 - Neurologica Corp., a neuroscience-based medical imaging company, launched its CereTom OTOscan in-office CT scanner optimized for Otolaryngology, enabling ENT doctors to cost-effectively scan patients in-office for a quicker diagnosis.

The CereTom OTOscan 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. The system 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 designed for use in the physician's office.

The CereTom OTOscan images both bone and soft tissue at a reportedly affordable price. Its compact size, low dose, low scatter and comprehensive functionality is designed for in-office use, enabling physicians to conduct head and neck diagnostic scans on patients.
