Abstract

This is a cross sectional study of 40 patients diagnosed with chronic rhinosinusitis using the Lanza Kennedy diagnostic criteria based on nasal endoscopy (NE), and on computer tomography (CT) of the paranasal sinuses. The purpose of the study is to demonstrate the effectiveness and limitations of CT, and NE in the assessment of chronic rhinosinusitis. This study shows that CT was superior in detecting OMC involvement, presence of concha bullosa, paradoxical turbinate and nasal septal deviation. NE was better at detecting polyps.
