We provide gentle rhinoscopy exams for patients of all ages
Allergy, Asthma, & Immunology Medical Group’s commitment to bringing the latest diagnostic technologies to our patients can be seen in our rhinoscopy services. A rhinoscope is a device which has a tiny camera on the end of a long, flexible tube. We use the device to examine the nasal passages, where the sinuses drain, the back of the throat, and vocal cords. Rhinoscopy allows us to perform a visual examination of hidden nasal and pharyngeal areas and shed light on any dangerous or irritating conditions that may be present.
Signs You Might Need a Rhinoscopy
Rhinoscopy is often used to diagnose problems in patients with any of the following conditions or symptoms:
- Consistent nasal discharge
- Noisy breathing
- Excessive sneezing
- Nasal polyps
- Post nasal drainage
Once we have performed the rhinoscopy, we will have a much better understanding of what exactly is causing your symptoms. Then, we can provide treatment options which may include medications, allergy or asthma management tips, or surgery in the case of severe nasal polyps. You can rely on us to provide a safe and effective course of treatment that is personalized to your needs and is in agreement with the treatment standards endorsed by the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma,& Immunology.
