About the Scan- Sinus CT Scan

SMIL offers a sinus CT scan which gives our radiologists clearer images of the sinuses making it easier to identify problems.

A sinus CT scan shows a patient’s paranasal sinus cavities. The paranasal sinuses are hollow, air-filled spaces located within the bones of the face and surrounding the nasal cavity, a system of air channels connecting the nose with the back of the throat. There are four pairs of sinuses, each connected to the nasal cavity by small openings.

A sinus CT scan is primarily used to detect the presence of inflammatory disease and help diagnose sinusitis. A sinus scan can also identify nasal and sinus tumors, and evaluate sinuses that are filled with fluid or thickened sinus membranes.

Learn more about how to prepare for the sinus scan in the sinus CT scan preparations section.
