Objective:To evaluate role of Diagnostic Nasal Endoscopy and CT scan in various Sinonasaldiseases with regards to diagnosis and surgical intervention. Patient and methods:This prospective study was carried out in Department of ENT, A.N.M.M.C.H., Gaya on 200 patients with clinical evidence of sinonasal disease who had presented between March 2016 to February 2019. All patients were evaluated with DNE using 0 degree 4mm endoscope and CT scan with 3 mm coronal cuts. Result: Female patients(56%) were more as compared to male(44%) with majority between 21 - 40 yrs. Most common finding on Diagnostic Nasal Endoscopy(DNE) was mucopurulent discharge in middle meatuswhile on CT Scan was maxillary sinusitis(60%). Sinonasal polyp detection was better with DNE.CT has better detection rate of anatomical variation of osteomeatal complex. Conclusion : DNE has become initial tool for diagnosis as it is cost effective and office based procedure. In patients where surgical intervention is required, CT scan has advantage as it provides detailed understanding of anatomical variations. So bothDNE and CT scan should be used in collaborative fashion. Source Of Support:Patients of A.N.M.C.H., Gaya. Conflict Of Interest:None.
