Three-Dimensional Surface Rendering of Nasal Anatomy From Computed Tomographic Data

Arch Otolaryngol Head Neck Surg. 1989;115(12):1434-1437. doi:10.1001/archotol.1989.01860360036013

• This article investigates the potential of using three-dimensional surface-rendered computed tomographic reconstructions for demonstrating normal and pathologic intranasal anatomy. Three-dimensional surface renderings of the intranasal structures were generated in 38 patients from coronal high-resolution computed tomographic images. Because of the complex anatomy, three-dimensional images were believed to be useful for surgical planning. There may be a correlation between the appearance of the uncinate process and severity of inflammatory sinus disease.
