Ct Of Sinus
Not quite: The CT of the sinuses focuses in on the sinuses (though the radiation goes through the entire skull) and generally covers the entire set of sinuses (sphenoid, maxillary, frontal, ethmoid). The orbital CT will cover the eye sockets (and those pictures are zoomed in). While the sinuses lies behind the eyes (& so they overlap), the focus & coverage of these scans are slightly different. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I have this strange offensive odor coming from my nose. Ent cleared CT not sinus problem, no dental problem. What else could it be. Please help.?
Netty pot: Dr. Hamid answer is excellent. If you think that it is coming from your nose, try the netty pot. Get at drug store. It is a small tea pot that you place hot salt water into it, then irrigate your nose with the water. In one nostril, then the other. Flushing out any impurities, etc. Can't hurt while you are waiting for the other tests. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Possible: A concha bullosa is an air containing middle turbinate (a normal structure in the lateral wall of the nose.

Depending on of the size of the cyst in the sinus, probably maxillary), I would definitely call this a rhino-sinusitis. Symptoms are complaints. Your statement is x-ray findings. ...Read more

Often times the TMJ clicks, pops, or is tender when you put your finger into the ear canal and open and close your jaw. Splints and specialist care should be considered before it gets worse. ...Read more
Doubtful: A standard CT scan of the brain would have challenges in determining inner ear issues or blood flow per se. Additional modifications would be needed for the latter (along with the appropriate clinical symptoms), and other types of scans would be better for evaluation for the former (e.g. MRI, again, with the appropriate symptoms). ...Read more
