ABSTRACTTo diagnose rhinosinusitis, the history and physical examination usually suffice. However, imaging may be necessary to guide further treatment in patients whose condition is refractory to treatment and patients with chronic or recurrent acute rhinosinusitis or acute rhinosinusitis with complications. A brief review of current imaging options and their recommended use is presented.
