A CT scan of the sinuses is a non-invasive diagnostic imaging test that produces multiple cross-section images of the head and brain. CT stands for “computed tomography’, and is also commonly referred to as a “CAT” scan. The images generated during a CT scan can be used to generate three-dimensional images.
Preparing For The Procedure:
If you have any metal objects, such as eyeglasses, jewelry, dentures or hair accessories, remove them before the CT scan. These objects may affect the CT images. Removable hearing aids and dental work should also be removed before the test. Women should inform their physician if there is a chance they may be pregnant.
