CT scan

CT Scan

A CT scan is like a superhero’s x-ray vision, offering a detailed look inside your sinuses. It’s quick, non-invasive, and incredibly insightful. This scan information can help us understand the underlying causes of your sinus pain, whether it’s inflammation, infection, or structural issues. With this clarity, we can better tailor our allergy treatments to suit your unique needs, ensuring you get the most effective care possible.

Nasal Endoscopy

Imagine a tiny camera embarking on a journey through your nasal passages. That’s a nasal endoscopy for you! It’s a simple yet powerful procedure where we gently insert a thin, flexible tube with a camera into your nose. This gives us a real-time view of what’s happening inside, helping us diagnose issues that might be missed by other tests. It’s a crucial step in ensuring you receive the precise treatment for your sinus issues.

Allergy Tests

Allergy testing is our special detective work to uncover what triggers your sinus and allergy woes. Through skin or blood tests, we can help identify specific allergens causing your discomfort. This knowledge is power as it allows us to develop personalized allergy treatments, ensuring you’re not just treating symptoms but also addressing the root cause.

Mucus Samples

At times, the most valuable clues can be found right in front of us — or, in this situation, right in our own mucus. By examining a sample of your mucus, we are able to identify any indications of infection or other underlying causes that may be contributing to your sinus discomfort. While this test may seem simple, it can offer essential insights that can guide your treatment plan and ultimately help alleviate your symptoms.
