Abstract
OBJECTIVE
To investigate the accuracy of cone beam CT (CBCT) to diagnose non-invasive chronic fungal rhinosinusitis.

METHODS
Preoperative CT evaluation of non-invasive chronic fungal rhinosinusitis was performed by CBCT (3D Accuitomo 170(®)) and traditional multidetector CT (MDCT) (Aquilion 32(®)) in 13 and 38 patients with non-invasive chronic fungal maxillary sinusitis, respectively, in different facilities. Detection of intrasinus calcification was compared between these two groups.

RESULTS
Detection of intrasinus calcification in patients with non-invasive chronic fungal maxillary sinusitis was higher in the MDCT group (84.2%) than the CBCT group (46.2%).

CONCLUSION
CBCT is inferior to MDCT in detection of intrasinus calcification in patients with non-invasive chronic fungal maxillary sinusitis. CBCT is frequently used in the screening of the paranasal lesion, but it is not enough to evaluate non-invasive chronic fungal maxillary sinusitis alone.

STUDY DESIGN
Retrospective study.
