Abstract

PURPOSE OF REVIEW:

Sinus computed tomography (CT) interpretation is subject to individual variation. We propose a template-driven approach as a method to ensure CT interpretation that is complete and efficient.

RECENT FINDINGS:

Recent years have seen the description of newly noted anatomic abnormalities in the paranasal sinuses that should be noted during sinus CT interpretation.

SUMMARY:

There exists significant variation in the methodology by which sinus CT scans are interpreted and the findings are reported. We believe that it will benefit radiologists and otolaryngologists alike to use a simple, template-driven approach to describe the findings encountered on a sinus CT. In this study, we present one such approach.
