In brief: Exam is best

Physical exam is the best test for a nasal fracture.
You should reassess the nose once swelling has gone down to determine whether or not bones are significantly enough displaced to warrant surgery. Imaging studies such as xrays and ct scans can be performed, but are usually unnecessary.
