Children with chronic sinusitis

Because chronic sinusitis can be so difficult to pin down, managing the disease and determining the patient’s need for surgery requires evaluating the disease. X-ray films do miss many things that show up on computed tomography (CT) scans, including slight variations and anatomic structures. Rande Lazar, a Memphis ENT with a pediatric focus, did a study comparing CT, x-rays, and a few other scanning techniques for their effectiveness in detecting chronic sinusitis symptoms.

Though CT scans vastly outperformed all other scanning techniques, determinations about a diagnosis or possible surgery should still be made considering symptoms and physical exams along with the results of the CT scan.
