What is a CT Scan PNS?

PNS is the full form of Para Nasal Sinuses. A Computed Tomography (CT) Scan of the PNS is an imaging test of sinuses which uses X-Rays to bring out in-depth images of air-filled spaces within the bones of the face, surrounding the nasal cavity. It usually includes the upper area of the throat, behind the nose. Some doctors refer to CT Scan PNS as Sinus CT Scan also.

When does a doctor prescribe CT Scan PNS?

A doctor might ask for a CT PNS when Sinusitis or a Post Nasal Drip (PND) is suspected. Post nasal drip is the discharge of mucus from the sinuses and nose which can adversely affect one’s throat and cause pin prick like pain.

This test is also performed to diagnose various complications in the human body. These may include:

  • Birth defects in the sinuses
  • Injury from trauma on the face over the sinuses
  • Infection in the sinus bones
  • Masses and tumor, including cancer of the nasal cavity and sinuses
  • To evaluate if sinuses are filled with fluid or if the sinus membranes have thickened
  • The reason for repeated blood loss from the nose, and many more.

Results from this test also help in directing the future course of treatment for the patient. Unlike plain x ray, a CT Scan PNS brings out excellent anatomical soft tissue and bony details.

CT Scan PNS Procedure

During the CT Scan PNS procedure, the patient will be asked to lie down on a table which eventually slides into the centre of the CT scanner. In the room, distinct light lines may be seen projected onto your body. These are used to make sure you are correctly positioned.

CT Scan PNS is usually performed without a contrast dye. However, if you are scheduled for the examination with a contrast dye, then you must not eat or drink anything 6 hours before the exam.

Once everything is in place, the X-Ray beams rotate around you to take separate images of the concerned body parts. With the introduction of advanced CT scanners, patients now can only hear slight buzzing and whirring during the entire procedure as the internal parts of the machine rotate around you to take images. The images taken by the scanner are also known as slices. These can be either viewed on the monitor or printed on film, depending on what your doctor has asked for. Three-dimensional models of the body part can also be created by assembling all the slices together.

As the machine takes images of your body part, it is advisable to lie still as movement can cause the images to blur. You may also be asked by your technician to hold your breath for a few seconds during the procedure.

A CT Scan PNS is a very comfortable procedure and usually lasts from 10-45 minutes.

Preparation Before A CT Scan PNS

For some CT Scan PNS examinations, the patient might need to be injected a contrast dye before the test, in order to help particular areas come out better. A contrast dye, in all probability, will be given to you by your technician in your hand or forearm. You will be asked to not eat or drink 6 hours before the examination.

When injected with contrast, you may experience a feeling like you have to urinate; however, this is essentially a contrast effect which fades out quickly.

If you are diabetic and take insulin, make sure you disclose every little detail about you to your doctor as he/she might have to adjust your dose before the examination.

In case you are allergic to a certain type of food or X-Ray, it is a good idea to inform your radiologist or technician in advance. Also, if you have any heart, asthma, kidney complications, or if you could possibly be pregnant, please let the technologist know before your exam.

CT machines usually have a weight limit too. If you are on the heavier side of the scale, let your technician know as excessively high weight can cause damage to the scanner.

Risks Associated with CT Scan PNS

The primary risk associated with a CT Scan is exposure to radiation. One must know, during this procedure, the patient is exposed to radiations more, than in an X-Ray. Having numerous X-Rays and CT Scans can increase your chances of cancer, over a period of time.

In case you are or could be pregnant, make sure to inform your doctor beforehand as radiations can unfavorably affect a developing fetus.

In case of contrast scans, you must inform your doctor if you are allergic to contrast dye. Iodine is present in one of the most common dyes used for a CT Scan PNS examination. If allergic, you might experience nausea, vomiting, itching or sneezing, if given.

If you are diabetic or are facing kidney problems and have been prescribed a contrast scan, you may be asked to consume a lot of fluids after the examination to flush the iodine out of your body.

Hardly ever the dye may cause a life-threatening allergic reaction. It is called anaphylaxis. If anytime during the entire procedure you have difficulty in breathing, let your radiologist immediately know. You can read more about the CT Scan PNS here

A CT Scan PNS Sagittal when the patient’s Para Nasal Sinuses are examined and images generated are from the left and right.

In case your doctor feels that your entire throat is also required apart from the Para Nasal Sinuses, a CT Scan PNS with Neck is suggested and performed.

Not very commonly prescribed, but the above scans may also be performed after injecting or orally consuming a contrast dye. This is usually done to get clearer images of the particular body part. Patients, when injected or fed the dye, may feel a metallic taste in their mouth or a tingling warm sensation in the body. Do not worry, the above side-effects are normal during the procedure. You may want to increase your fluid intake after the examination, in order to flush the dye out of your body.

We all must know that CT Scanning is painless, noninvasive and a very accurate examination. It is one of the most reliable imaging technique to determine if the sinuses are blocked and congested. You may read more about CT Scan PNS here.
