Haziness in X-Ray Paranasal Sinus Water's View in Sinusitis: A Fact or Fiction

, : Haziness in X-Ray Paranasal Sinus Water's View in Sinusitis: A Fact or Fiction. Indian Journal of Otolaryngology and Head and Neck Surgery 65(Suppl 2): 242-246

It is a clinical dilemma whether patients having no symptoms of sinusitis but sinus haziness in X-ray should be considered as sinusitis or not and patients clinically having sinusitis and do not have radiological evidence should be considered as case of sinusitis or not. This study is an attempt to discuss this issue in details. To study diagnostic efficacy of conventional X-ray para nasal sinus water's view in sinusitis. To study the proportion of asymptomatic individuals showing haziness in conventional X-ray para nasal sinus water's view. Sensitivity and specificity of sinus X-ray in combination (conventional + digital) is 95 and 44%, respectively. Proportion of asymptomatic individuals showing haziness in conventional X-ray and digital X-ray paranasal sinus water's view are 52.4 and 75%, respectively. X-ray paranasal sinus water's view undoubtedly yields valuable information regarding sinus pathology. However it should not be accepted as a diagnosis in itself, but considered in the light of patient's history and clinical findings.
