Abstract

This paper stresses the importance of CT scans in the evaluation of sinus disorders and in providing valuable anatomic information to the sinus surgeon to reduce the risks of surgical complications. The scans may also detect discreet pathology, otherwise missed, that may be responsible for unexplained symptoms like headache, facial pains, cough, midfacial congestion and postnatal drip. The CT technique and limitations are briefly discussed. The MRI is not recommended as a routine study in sinus disorders.
