He then turns on the X-ray equipment to start producing a beam of ionizing radiation

These rays are emitted over the paranasal sinuses, which are positioned in front of the opening of the device. Part of the radiation will be absorbed by the tissues, while the rest will hit a plate inserted in the equipment table. If the technology is analog, the radiation burns the radiological film, which must be developed to show the images. In digital X-ray, the signal is captured and sent to a computer with a specific program, which converts the signal into a digital image (made up of pixels). In both cases, dense tissue such as bone appears in white, while air is depicted in black. Soft parts are recorded in shades of gray. X-ray report with sinusitis The X-ray report of the paranasal sinuses must be issued by a qualified radiologist.

This specialist must have knowledge about the

Anatomy and functioning of the examined region, in addition to the process of forming radiographic images. For the medical report to be complete, it must contain. Full name of the patient Name and address of the place where the examination was performed Name of the requesting physician Date of the examination Justification for requesting the procedure Conduct and Japan Phone Number List detailed description of the examination Diagnostic hypothesis Additional information about the patient, such as age, weight, height, etc. Conclusion, indicating normal or altered result Signature of the physician responsible for the report. According to the aforementioned study by the Brazilian Association of Otorhinolaryngology, the radiological criteria that indicate acute rhinosinusitis are: Mucoperiosteal thickening of 3 mm or more.

Other exams to detect sinusitis it

Should be noted that the clinical diagnosis is useful in many cases of sinusitis. Faced with the combination of symptoms such as fever, headache. Nasal congestion, cough with phlegm, bad breath and internal pressure on the face, this pathology must be considered. And complement DD Leads reports of complaints with a complete physical assessment. If there is any doubt, the doctor can use, in addition to X-rays, the following imaging tests: Nasal endoscopy: examination performed by, who use a thin, rigid tube that makes it possible to visualize the interior of the nasal cavities and paranasal sinuses Tomography of the paranasal sinuses : employs ionizing radiation and a rotating tube to reveal with bone detail. Due to its higher quality than X-rays and lower cost than magnetic resonance imaging.
