Ct Scan Says Mucoperiosteal Thickening Of The Maxillary Sinuses
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. Humidify and filter the air while also producing mucus 4. Play a role in vocal resonance. The head contains 4 paired sinus cavities: maxillaries (cheek) under the eyes, ethmoids(between the eyes), frontals (above ...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
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?
Don't worry: I presume these are findings from a ct scan. That is typical radiology terminology from a ct or MRI report, and ct scans visualize the sinuses very well. Mucosal thickening indicates that the lining of the sinuses looks thicker than normal, which may come from anything causing sinus inflammation: allergies or mild infection. The frontal sinuses are just over the eyes, the sphenoid behind them. ...Read more
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
Chronic sinusitis: This is a sign of chronic inflammation, often due to constricted sinus drainage pathways. If you are having symptoms related to the sinuses (congestion, drainage, pressure/headache, etc) that have persisted for 3 or more months, together with the CT findings you describe, and this persists despite treatment with antibiotics & nasal sprays, u would be candidate for procedure to open the sinus(es). ...Read more
Ct results1mild mucosal thickening involving the ethmoid air cells and small mucous retention in the left maxillary sinus.2small concha bullosa bilaterally without ostiomeatal stenosis. Please explain?
Sinus CT: Concha bullosa are common anatomic variants of bones in the nasal cavity. When they are large, they can obstruct the sinus drainage pathway and predispose to sinusitis. When small, usually of no concern. Small mucus retention cysts and mild mucosal thickening may be related to mild chronic sinusitis. However, these mild findings may not even cause noticeable symptoms. ...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
My head MRI report says hypoplasia of the right maxillary antrum with mucosal thickening and fluid?
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
Hi Doctor My CT scan told me the result 1.pansinusitis with ethmoids bilaterally and right maxillary antrum.no fluids no polyps Opacified nasal cavity?
What does mild thickening of the mucosal lining in sinuses mean? Dr said it was common finding on sinus CT scans.
Mri: mild opacification of the inferior left maxillary & right sphenoid sinuses. A mild opacification is seen in the inferior right mastoid air cells?
If no symptoms....: Probably nothing to worry about. Many patients have some mucosal thickening or a small amount of fluid in 1 or more of the sinuses or mastoid air cells. However, if there is pressure, pain or tenderness over the sinuses or around/behind an ear, a fever or foul smelling, bloody or purulent nasal secretions, a sinus infection or mastoiditis is a concern. Please see your doctor. ...Read more
Pns radiology revealed suspecious polypoid in the right maxillary area , 2. Left frontal mucouse disease. Is this serious sinusitis..?
Potentially: You need further evaluation. The radiologic features do not tell you the cause or the severity of the symptoms that may occur. See an ENT doctor and discuss this at length. ...Read more
Not related: The concussion specifically would affect the brain. Some of the potential findings include micro-hemorrhages and diffuse axonal injury. The mucosal thickening has to do with the inflammation of the sinuses. If you struck your nose or face during the injury, these findings may be from the irritation to the nose/sinues. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
CT mild mucosal thickening of the posterior ethmoidal air cells, clear other scanned paranasal sinuses, patent both ostiomeatal units, intact bony boundaries. That means? I have random headaches
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
