Serova N.S., Evseeva E.V.

Purpose. Determining the possibilities of modern radiology methods – multi-slice computed tomography (MSCT) and cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) – in the diagnosis of inflammatory changes in the maxillary sinuses of odontogenic etiology.

Materials and methods. The study involved 180 patients (100%) with maxillary sinusitis between the ages of 21 to 81 years, all patients underwent radiology examination.

Results. Low efficiency of radiography was revealed. From 180 patients (100%) with maxillary sinusitis the usage of computed tomography helped to verify the diagnosis, to define the radiological characteristics of odontogenic etiology and to choose correctly the further treatment in 124 patients (68,8%).

Conclusion. MSCT and CBCT are th e most informative methods in diagnostics of odontogenic maxillary sinusitis.
