Screening for Sinusitis

The purpose of screening is early diagnosis and treatment. Screening tests are usually administered to people without symptoms, but who may be at high risk for certain diseases or conditions.

Screening Guidelines

There are no screening guidelines for the early diagnosis of either acute or chronic sinusitis. Acute sinusitis is a temporary condition that generally is easily treated with medications and often resolves without any treatment. Screening for chronic sinusitis might find affected persons who have no symptoms, but there is no evidence that their health would be improved by presymptomatic treatment for this condition.
