  • Computed Tomography
  • Computed Tomography (CT) of the paranasal sinuses has gradually replaced conventional radiographs due to its high resolution in visualizing the anatomical structures and osseous detail. (philips.dk)
  • There are certain recurring patterns of inflammatory sinus disease that may be seen on sinus computed tomography (CT). (appliedradiology.com)
  • Routine computed tomography of the sinuses before starting or switching TNF╬▒ antagonists may deserve consideration. (springer.com)
  • ostium
  • The results of experimental studies suggest that the natural ventilation-rate of a sinus with a single sinus ostium (opening), is extremely slow. (wikipedia.org)
  • The pressure differentials are directed to the center of the sinuses producing mucosal edema, transudation, and mucosal-or submucosal-hematoma, leading to further occlusion of the sinus ostium. (wikipedia.org)
  • The magnitude of the pressure difference needed to produce a barotrauma probably shows great individual variation and is related to the size of the sinus ostium and the rate of ambient pressure change. (wikipedia.org)
