CT Results

Could someone please explain my results to me:

Paranasal sinuses are symmetrically developed. The coastal thickening is present at the bases of the frontal sinuses and narrows the left frontal recess. Minimal mucosal thickening is present in the maxillary sinuses a narrows the left ostiomeatal unit. Subcentimeter polyps versus mucus retention cysts are present at the bases of the maxillary sinuses bilaterally. Mucosal thickening is present in the anterior left ethmoid air cells. Sphenoid sinuses and sphenoethmoidal recesses are normal. No acute fracture or destructive osseous process is identified. Visualized aspects of the skull base appear normal. Optic globes, preseptal and post septal soft tissues are intact, normal and symmetric. Nasal septum is midline and no masses are present within the nasal passages.

IMPRESSION:

Mild degree of predominant left-sided sinus disease.

Hi,
Based from the CT result, presence of polyps or mucus retention cysts are present in the base of the maxillary sinus. Further evaluation may need to be done and additional factors such as symptoms and medical history are important considerations. It is best that you discuss the result with your attending physician for proper diagnosis. Take care and do keep us posted.
