I don't know about a CT, but a Brain MRI/contrast showed Mucoperisosteal changes involveing the right maxillary sinus, suggestive of inflammatory polyp. so it does show some things and thats helpful to actually know whats in there.
BTW that causes me no trouble. I read about it on the report but the Dr didn't even mention it. I'm 56 and I've never had any known polyup before but I guess this one is totally unimportant in the scheme of things. The MRI was not about sinus problems..We are looking about something else entirely but this showed up in the report anyway.
I don't have any physical sensation of the existance of this polyup. If you have one you won't even know unless it's on the picture. I'm SURE for some people such things can be very problematic and the pic is needed to tell the tale.
BTW I also am full of allergies. I take meds like claritin have an inhaler. I suggest you take the test the Dr recommends. Just because you already have allergies, infection history and asthma it does not mean you can't also have something new.
