Mouth Breathing

I probably need deviated septum surgery and possibly polyp removal, as I breath thru my
mouth 75% of the time.

My question is about the Cat Scan that doctors are so quick to require before
any such procedure. I already have a complete sinus Cat Scan that is 4 years old, and I
really don't want that exposure again. Isn't there another option, maybe an MRI, or Ultra Sound
that can be done. Or, alternatively, nothing has changed in 4 years, is another Scan needed?
