What is CT PNS?
Computerized Tomography (CT) scan of the Paranasal Sinuses (PNS) is a diagnostic procedure where rotating beams of X-rays are used to create cross sectional images of the PNS, which are air filled hollow spaces in the facial bones surrounding the nasal cavities. These can then be used to create a three dimensional image of the Paranasal Sinuses which helps to assess and diagnose any suspected diseases of the sinuses.
Why is CT PNS done?
- • To detect and diagnose chronic sinusitis or presence of any fluid in the sinus cavities • To detect any infections or inflammation of the sinuses • To detect the presence of any tumors (abnormal growth) • To plan and guide the treatment procedures if any conducted • To diagnose suspected deviated nasal septum
