Abstract

Olfactory dysfunction has been reported to affect about 79,000 patients who were treated annually in German ORL-hospitals. The incidence of olfactory dysfunctions emphasizes the need for diagnostic strategies. This article features on the dysfunction of human olfaction including neurodegenerative diseases. Standard procedures for the psychophysical and objective assessment of olfactory function are presented. Current diagnostic imaging techniques for routine use and scientific approaches are discussed.
