In brief: Findings on CT?

It sounds like you are reading the findings on a sinus ct.
. Nasal congestion would usually refer to swelling of the turbinates, projections inthe nose that help humidify the nose. A retention cyst in the sinus is generally a benign mass that causes no problems. If an ENT ordered the scan you want his interpretation, as the radiologist doesn't always understand everything we are looking for.
