In-Office CT Scanning

When you visit Dallas ENT, a trained sinus care specialist will discuss your symptoms and medical history. They may then decide that a CT scan of your sinuses is necessary for an accurate diagnosis. CT (or computed tomography) scanners allow us to create three-dimensional x-ray images of your paranasal sinuses, accurately diagnose your condition, and develop your personal care plan.

When are Sinus CT Scans Performed?

A CT scan of the sinuses is used for many reasons. Some include:

  • Diagnosing sinusitis
  • Evaluating fluid-filled or thickened sinus membranes
  • Gaining insight into sinus and nasal cavity tumors
  • Reviewing sinus anatomy before surgery

Do I need to Prepare for a Sinus CT Scan?

Preparing for a CT scan of the sinuses is minimal. Some general guidelines to help you prepare are:

  • Wear comfortable clothing.
  • Remove all detachable metals before the scan. This includes jewelry, hearing aids, piercings, etc.
  • If your CT scan requires a contrast material(such as a dye or other liquid that helps your body part show up better in the pictures), you will need to fast for a few hours.
  • Make sure you have reviewed your medical history and medications with your doctor before the scan is performed.
  • If there is a possibility you are pregnant, please inform your doctor immediately.
