SMIL’s Maxillofacial CT scan (face scan) has become the key diagnostic modality in the evaluation of head trauma. These face scans evaluate the bones of the face including the orbits, sinuses, mandible (jaw), and teeth. This scan can detect fractures, orbit injury, sinus infections, eye infections, and tumors of the face and nearby tissues.
This noninvasive imaging process enables our radiologists to obtain a detailed face scan to locate any facial abnormalities. The maxillofacial CT scan has proven effective in finding tumors and other problems in the face and head.
SMIL’s radiologists help facial trauma victims in the Arizona area. Our radiologists perform these face scans quickly and painlessly.
