Orbital and intracranial complications of acute sinusitis

Neuroimaging Clin N Am. 2010 Nov;20(4):511-26. doi: 10.1016/j.nic.2010.07.004.

Abstract

This article addresses the imaging considerations for subtle early studies of imaging findings in sinusitis, focusing on early detection by the radiologist, which depend on dedicated imaging protocols and a careful, thorough search pattern. Pathogenesis and key imaging findings for orbital complications are discussed, followed by the intracranial complications of sinusitis.
