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.
