OBJECTIVE To determine the significance of cross-sectional areas obtained by acoustic rhinometry. DESIGN Comparison of data obtained by acoustic rhinometry and computed tomography (CT). SETTING Outpatient clinic. PATIENTS Nine adults with nasal obstruction due to turbinate hypertrophy. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES Acoustic rhinometry and CT were performed after nasal decongestion. The acoustic area-distance curve was analyzed based on 3 notches (A1, A2, and A3) corresponding to 3 local minimal… CONTINUE READING
