Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

Could you look at a CT scan of my sinus? I need to know what is causing my sinus infection. Please help.


Answered by  Dr. Murari. M.


Welcome to icliniq.com.

I understand your concern.

I am sorry to know that you have been struggling with sinus issues. CT (computed tomography) showed some mucosal thickening of the lining of sinuses, with well-aerated sinuses in the visualized cut. However, this needs to be revised as the CT scan needs to be read in continuation with all the cuts and all three planes to fully visualize the sinuses for a comprehensive assessment and opinion. Kindly provide complete set of images and report along with the associated signs and symptoms in detail for a proper diagnosis and management.

I hope this information will help you.


Differential diagnosis:

Differential diagnosis is chronic rhinosinusitis.

Preventive measures:

Avoid exposure to allergens.
