Comparative study of standard radiology, sinuscopy and sinusomanometry in the maxillary sinus of the adult (about 465 maxillary sinuses)

Academic Article


  • The authors examine the correlations among standard X-ray, sinuscopy and sinusomanometry for 465 maxillary sinuses in the adult. Good overall correspondence exists between radiography and sinuscopy (51.59 to 90.91%) but there is no real correlation between sinusomanometry and a sinuscopy that fails to visualize the ostium. Correlation is excellent when the morphologic appearance of the ostium is studied in conjunction with the sinusomanometric findings (82.09%). This study demonstrates the morphologic and the functional examinations to be rigorously complementary and indissociable.
