Depends on symptoms: It's very import for your doctor to correlate what radiologists find on your scans with your physical findings and symptoms. As far as your sinus findings, these are normally air filled areas along your face but an MRI will show if the lining is thickened or if the space has become fluid filled. Feel free to schedule a consult and upload your images and we can review these findings in detail.
