Abstract

Computerized tomographic imaging of the nasal and paranasal regions is frequently used for sinonasal surgery. CBCT is another less explored modality which can provide accurate anatomic details. A retrograde study was done on 204 random scans to find out incidence and prevalence of sino-nasal anatomical variations and associated pathologies. A positive correlation was found between deviated nasal septum and concha bullosa. CBCT can sure act as a guide in future for sinonasal surgeries with lesser cost and radiation exposure.

Keywords: CBCT, Deviated nasal septum, Choncha bullosa, Chronic sinusitis.
