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
Sinuses are air filled spaces in the head that have several proposed functions: 1. They serve as shock absorbers in cases of head trauma 2. Lighten the skull 3.
