    Neck cat scan

    Does anyone know if a neck cat scan can detect a sinus infection. I've been having a sore throat and coughing and some sinus pain. I had a neck cat scan done and barrium swallow done. Both turned out fine. Doctor told me my problem was acid reflux.

    Neck CT's rarely start above the base of the ear. Your sinuses are above that point. A sinus CT will show nasal and sinus inflammation but not be specific for infection.

    If sinuses can't be seen on a neck cat scan I wonder why would my ENT say my sinuses were clear on the scan. I've scheduled an appointment with a GI doctor and I'm thinking about scheduling another appointment with another ENT.
