Ct Of Sinus
In anatomy, a sinus is a cavity within a bone or other tissue. Most commonly found in the bones of the face and connecting with the nasal cavities. Sinus (anatomy), description of the general term paranasal sinuses, air cavities in the cranial bones, especially those near the nose, including: the maxillary sinuses, also called the maxillary antra and the largest of the ...Read more
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
Headaches, nasal congestion, sinuses, facial numbness, vision problems.Did CT scan showed only mucosal thickening of bilateral sphenoid and ethmoid.
Chronic sinusitis : Chronic allergic rhino sinusitis can definitely be causing your symptoms. I would recommend a one month trial of daily antihistamines like Claritin (loratadine) or zyrtec and nightly sinus rinses. If your symptoms are not better i would see an ENT like me who specializes in nose/sinus surgery to discuss options. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can a rear-end collision cause any type of sinus problem? What about sinuses and hemorrhages?
1st CT (10/14) showed abnormal sphenoid sinus layering; repeat CT (1/15) says Paranasal sinuses: Normal
Unclear: certainly a nasal injury can cause problems. Bumping one's nose or having an airbag hit it is a common cause of nasal injuries/sinus problems but would expect to see an injury if it is there. ...Read more
Both and more.: Ct scans are great for showing anatomy and disease states. Infection, trauma, tumors, and anatomic variants of normal can be seen. The sinuses have normal drainage pathways that can be seen as open or obstructed by infections, tumors, and deviations from normal anatomic form. Such deviations can lead to recurring/chronic sinusitis that may require surgical cure. ...Read more
My CT scan report reveals polyp retention in left maxillary sinus and bilateral sphenoid sinuses,polyp measures 3*1.8 cm.Is surgery necessary?
What is extensive opacification of the left sphenoid sinus and polypoid mucosial thickening in maxialary sinuses bilateraly?
Need more info: All that we can tell u from the little info in your question is that it is not normal. That could mean anything from some slight changes that are of no concern all the way to serious problems related to any organ in your chest. Ask the md who ordered it to explain the findings. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Brain MRI reveals complete opacification of the bilateral frontal and ethmoid sinus, otherwise normal, could this be cause of daily head pressure
Ct scan report reveals acute sinus and bilateral sphenoid sinus.doctor has prescribes clavam,velgut,xyzal-M and nazal spray.I have head heaviness.
A tonic for chronic: If the symptoms persist or worsen after completing the course of the antibiotic, call your doctor. The sinuses can take a while to heal. You might even need an extended course of antibiotic. The sphenoids don't drain as well as the maxillary or frontal sinuses, and they're not much better. Try and beat this ASAP, you don't want chronic sinusitis! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Surgery guidance: It is a specialized CT protocol. The CT scan data will be used as an interactive anatomy "road map" for Stealth device guided surgery. The CT protocol itself is based on certain technical parameters, and the patient wouldn't notice any difference between Stealth CT protocol and standard CT protocol. ...Read more
Got nose CT scanned with sinus , it shows left concha bullosa and cyst in right sinus. I have post nasal drip.Are these symptomps of sinusitis?
Possible: A concha bullosa is an air containing middle turbinate (a normal structure in the lateral wall of the nose. This may be a normal anatomical variant unless the cat scan demonstrates it is opaque (filled with mucus). Depending 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
The frontal sinuses are well-developed. There is mild mucosal thickening involving the inferior aspect of the bilateral frontal sinuses.
What's the question?: You have given us a statement, not a question. I assume you want to know what the radiological diagnosis means. In my experience, when a radiologist states mild mucosal thickening in any sinus, it is probably not of much clinical significance. Are you symptomatic, are other sinuses involved, do you have headaches, and finally are you ill? We need to know these things to help you. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Minor Musocal thickening within the left frontal sinus, the ethmoid air cells and right maxillary atrium found in MRI scan, have bad frontal headaches?
Mucosal thickening: What you are describing is completely normal with incidental finding of mucosal thickening on MRI. It is very common to see mild sinus mucosal thickening on MRI. It is not diagnostic of sinus infection or sinus obstruction. The cause of your headache is unlikely to be related to your sinuses. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
CT scan report reveals polyp retention on left maxillary sinus(3*1.5) and bilateral sphenoid sinuses.Doctor has asked for surgery,is surgery necessary?
Sinus polyp: Hello. A maxillary sinus polyp that is in the bottom of the sinus will not interfere with normal sinus drainage pathways. The question really is have you been treated with aggressive medical therapy. This month I treated a patient with sphenoid sinusitis which completely resolved. It may be worth seeing another ENT doctor for a second opinion ...Read more
Ct uses xrays taken an 360 degrees combined with a computer to see"inside" the body. The table moves as the xray tube and detectors spin around the patient 10 times a second or more! the image shows excellent soft tissue detail, enhanced with injection of intravenous contrast or oral contrast. This way the body is shown in slices, in any plane, usually axially, but ...Read more
