Question

I want to reopen a claim for rhinitis.

Rating schedule 6522 says Polyps or 50% obstruction on both sides or 100% obstruction on one side.

What test (x-ray, MRI, CT Scan, etc) do they use to determine obstruction?

Just trying to get information.

If the x-ray pictures are not clear, they may also perform a CAT scan, which may help identify a deviated septum

They did an x-ray on my C&P. They said it was all clear on the x-ray. I do not even have all my sinus cavities anymore, but I guess they couldn't see that on an x-ray? I had a CT-scan of my head 1-2 weeks ago. When I went in to get the results a few days ago, the CT- scan showed sinus disease was back or still there after my last sinus surgery a little over a year ago. If you have insurance coverage, I would push for a CT-scan, x-rays are a joke (but inexpensive!) unless you are looking for a broken bone.

That is where they stick a flexible or rigid 'sight tube' up your nostrils. Not fun, but they do use a local anesthetic spray and there is not much pain. They will be able to see any polyps for sure. It is quick, ENT office visit, 30 minutes to an hour from when you go back to when you are headed out the door.
