The Role of Acoustic Rhinometry in Studying the Nasal Cycle

Rhinology, 1993 Authors: E. W. Fisher, G. K. Scadding, V. J. Lund Conclusion: “Magnetic resonance Imaging is one way of expanding the sphere of study to the whole nasal cavity and paranasal sinuses, although it is prohibitively expensive for large scale studies. Acoustic rhinometry does not provide as extensive geometric information as MRI, but allow…

Acoustic Rhinometry: Values from Adults with Subjective Normal Nasal Patency

Rhinology, 1991 Authors: L. F. Grymer, O. Hilberg, O. F. Pedersen, and T. R. Rasmussen Conclusion: “The cross-sectional area of the nasal cavity increases in antero- posterior direction.” “The minimal cross-sectional area (MCA) is located in the anterior part of the nose, in some individuals probably at the head of the inferior turbinate, and after…

Acoustic Rhinometry: Evaluation of the Nasal Cavity with Septal Deviations, Before and After Septoplasty

Laryngoscope, 1989 Authors: L. F. Grymer, O. Hilberg, O. Elbrond, O. F. Pedersen Conclusion: “Acoustic rhinometry seems very suitable for evaluation of the nasal cavity in cases where septoplasty and turbinoplasty is considered, as well as for the postoperative evaluation. It provides an objective documentation of the visual impression of the nasal cavity, quantitative evaluation,…

Acoustic Rhinometry: Evaluation of Nasal Cavity Geometry by Acoustic Reflection

Journal of Applied Physiology, 1989 Authors: O. Hilberg, A. C. Jackson, D. L. Swift, and O. F. Pedersen Conclusion: “The clinical cases in this study are examples of the applicability of acoustic reflection measurements in the nose. Tumors in the nasal cavity and the epipharynx can be diagnosed, and the treatment can be monitored in…
