Variations of the nasolacrimal duct are optimally evaluated by dacryocystography, CT, MR imaging and nuclear scintigraphy.In this study morphometric measurements of the lacrimal drainage system were performed with thin- section axial computed tomography (CT) examinations in 30 patients with no signs of pathology related to the lacrimal drainage system. We also tried to demonstrade a correlation between nasolacrimal variations of duct and osteomeatal complex disase, opacification of paranasal sinuses, concha bullosa and nasal septal deviations.
Keywords: Nasolacrimal duct, computerized tomography.
