Dr. Shantanu Mandal and Dr. Ankur Gupta*

ABSTRACT

Introduction: Diagnostic nasal endoscopy and computed tomography of nose & para-nasal sinuses play an important role in the diagnosis and treatment of sino-nasal disaese. This study explains the importance of both, individually and together. Aims and Objective: The objective of this study is to compare the computed tomographic findings to the nasal endoscopy findings in patients with chronic sino-nasal diseases. This study aims to compare CT scan and DNE in sino-nasal diseases. Methods: 50 Patients attending ENT OPD with any sino-nasal complaints lasting for more than 4 weeks and not responding to medical line of management. Patients are selected by random sampling method. Patients were evaluated with Computerized Tomography scan and Diagnostic nasal Endoscopy. Results: Total 50 patients were studied. Male to female ratio was 3:2. Out of 50 patients maximum number of patients had septal deviation on nasal endoscopy examination (35); followed by nasal discharge (34) and nasal polyp (25) and inferior turbinate hypertrophy (13).Maxillary sinus opacity was seen in 20 cases ethmoid opacity in 18 cases, polyp in 10 cases, deviated nasal septum in 10 cases on computerized tomography. Conclusions: Thereby indicating that in all patients with sino nasal diseases both CT scan and DNE has to be done, to know the exact pathology and to plan for further management. Both Computerized Tomography scan and Diagnostic nasal endoscopy are complimentary to each other.

Keywords: Sino nasal disease, Computerized tomography, Diagnostic nasal endoscopy, Anatomical variants.
