RHINOSCOPY

Rhinoscopy procedure

A Rhinoscope is a thin, flexible, tube-like camera that is used to examine the inside of the nose and other parts of the upper airway, including the vocal cords. More specifically, this device is very helpful in evaluating and diagnosing certain conditions.

Signs You May Need a Rhinoscopy

Ordinarily, a rhinoscopy diagnoses patients with the following symptoms:

  • Consistent sneezing
  • Noise or wheezing while breathing
  • Nosebleeds
  • Drainage down the back of throat

After the Exam

After the exam, allergists better understand what is causing the patient’s symptoms.  From there, personalized treatment options for the management of the patient’s allergy or asthma are discussed.
