Overview


What is CECT PNS - Coronal?

A CECT PNS - Coronal or Contrast-Enhanced Computed Tomography of the Paranasal Sinuses (PNS) is a structural imaging technique. It uses highly focused X-ray beams and contrast material to capture multiple cross-sectional images of the paranasal sinuses.

These images help physicians identify and assess the abnormalities in the paranasal region, including chronic sinusitis or presence of fluid in the sinus cavities. These abnormalities may be present if the following symptoms are present:

Difficulty breathing because of nasal congestion

Postnasal discharge

Having many CECT PNS - Coronal over time may increase the risk of developing side effects. However, most reactions are mild. An abnormal scan test may indicate presence of chronic sinusitis (infection in the sinus cavities), inflammation, or growths in the paranasal regions of the nasal cavity.

Why is CECT PNS - Coronal done?

  1. • 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
