AbstractAim: The objective of the present study was to evaluate the role of computed tomography in the evaluation of paranasal sinus pathologies.
Methods: The Cross-Sectional Study was conducted at Dr. D. Y. Patil Medical College and Hospital and Research Centre, Pimpri, Pune from August 2020 to September 2022. 50 patients were included in the present study.
Results: Highest number of patients was males in his study accounting for 30 (60 %). In this study, majority of patients (20%) were in the range of 21-30 years followed by 9% patients in the range of 51-60 years. The youngest patient was 9 years old, while the eldest was 78 years old. 27 patients (54%) had midline nasal septum. 23 patients (46%) had deviated nasal septum with right side deviation seen in 12 patients (24%) and left side deviation seen in 11 patients (22%). Concha bullosa was seen in 11 patients (22%) with 5 patients having bilateral concha bullosa and 6 patients having unilateral concha bullosa. Osteomeatal unit obstruction was seen in 33 patients (66%). Most involved sinus in this study was anterior ethmoid sinus (86%), followed by maxillary sinus (84%), posterior ethmoid sinus (84%), sphenoid sinus (54%) and frontal sinus (50%).
Conclusion: As a conclusion, CT of paranasal sinuses has enhanced the ability to visualize the anatomical structures of the sinuses and increased the accuracy of diagnosing paranasal sinus diseases. A credible pre-operative road map is provided by the accurate delineation of disease and microanatomy by CT scan
