In-office Computed Tomography (CT) is becoming more popular today with both patients and otolaryngologists.

It enhances patient care by improving the quality and convenience we can offer our patients. This diagnostic modality enhances patient satisfaction, as the otolaryngologist is able to review the imaging study with the patient at the time of the office visit prior to initiating treatment.

In-office CT may be instrumental in the management of several clinical scenarios such as 1) the headache patient who is convinced that his or her headache is due to sinusitis. Timely imaging may help confirm or refute this diagnosis. 2) It is helpful in the early postoperative period when the patient complains of facial pain, headache, or fever, to rule out potential complications. 3) It is useful on the weekend and after hours, when requesting a CT in the emergency department could take hours. 4) It is important for the patient who meets symptom criteria for chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) and has abnormal endoscopy. In-Office CT will help establish accurate diagnosis and institute appropriate medical therapy in a timely fashion.

There are no scheduling delays, as the CT can be performed immediately with no time away from work, school or play. The patient is informed of the results at the time of the office visit and appropriate treatment is recommended.
