Endoscopy of the Nose

Ενδοσκόπηση της μύτης στο εξωτερικό ιατρείο. Το λεπτό τηλεσκόπιο βρίσκεται μέσα στο ρουθούνι του ασθενούς, και ο γιατρός βλέπει την εικόνα στην οθόνη απέναντί του.
Endoscopy of the nose in the Outpatient’s Clinic. The thin endoscope is inside the right nostril, and the examiner is looking at the monitor opposite to the examination chair.

Modern examination of the nose is done with the rigid endoscope, a thin telescope with a diameter of 4 mm. For children or special cases, an even thinner scope can be used, with diameter of 2.9 mm. The scope is typically connected to a camera, and the examination is done through a appropriate monitor.

The examination is simple and painless. If needed, topical preparation of the nose with cotton pledgets soaked in local anaesthetic may precede the endoscopy.

The endoscope of the outpatient’s clinic is similar to the scope used in the operating theatre for Endoscopic Sinus Surgery.
