Generally, ENT/Head and Neck specialists are called upon to examine conditions like loss of hearing, balance problems, onset of dizziness, sudden facial paralysis, chronic infection, intermittent ringing of the ears and similar types of sensory complaints. These may caused by benign conditions or result from cancerous tumors.
Diagnostic imaging is an indispensable tool in the characterization and staging of conditions involving the head and neck. This highly specialized, delicate field requires complex training and the very best technology available. EPIC Imaging has one of the few divisions in the region devoted specifically to this field and two exceptionally trained radiologists, Dr. Tyler Lippincott and Dr. Joseph Haberman.
What makes this science so challenging is how connected and intermingled the sensory system is. All these structures work together. Taste is connected to smell. The balance mechanisms of the inner ear are connected to the eyes. And so on. This is further complicated by the extremely tiny and delicate structures of the sensory system.
The great advantage diagnostic imaging brings to ENT/Head and Neck imaging is its ability to isolate areas and pinpoint problems amid this interconnected web. EPIC’s highly sophisticated technology lets the radiologist view images of the head and neck in minute, little sections less than a millimeter wide. Through non-invasive means, we can easily rule out tumors and degeneration and provide your physician with the answers needed for effective treatment.Return to top
