THIS REVIEW of image-guidance technology for endoscopic sinus surgery is timely and well written. It summarizes the major issues and controversies in an organized, unbiased fashion. Casiano concludes that "currently available image-guidance technology requires a great deal of preoperative planning" and that "it cannot be used on an as-needed basis." In addition, the author states that although image-guidance technology has the potential to assist the surgeon in selected cases, significant outcome data are not available.
