What is Nasal Endoscopy?
Nasal endoscopy is a procedure that allows ENT specialist to visualise the nasal and sinus passages, larynx, pharynx and surrounding structures by using clear and highly magnified images. It is usually performed with a flexible or rigid endoscope, which is inserted through the nasal passages. Nasal endoscopy performed by an experienced specialist can be well tolerated after the application of local anaesthesia.
Why is Nasal Endoscopy required?
ENT specialist may recommend nasal endoscopy to diagnose nose-related conditions including sinusitis (sinus infection), nasal blockage, nosebleeds, nasal polyps (non-cancerous growths in the lining of the nasal or sinus passages), as well as different types of laryngeal trauma.
