[How can hyperreactive rhinopathy be modified surgically? II: Acoustic rhinometry and anterior turbinoplasty].

Abstract

By means of the acoustic reflection technique, or acoustic rhinometry, all cross-sectional areas of the upper airway can be measured by an acoustic signal. In this paper, the normal mean curve of 134 normal probands is determined. This normal curve shows the minimum cross-sectional area (I-notch) to be located at the Isthmus nasi.
