Rhinoscopy

Associated Veterinary Specialists Internal Medicine veterinarians provide the highest level of Rhinoscopy veterinary services in the St. Louis area

Rhinoscopy is most commonly performed after imaging of the nasal cavity with MRI. MRI is critical to localize the disease process. Nasal diseases not only involve the nose but also the sinuses, nasopharynx, often middle ears and sometimes the brain. Imaging is the first step. After imaging is done, various endoscopic equipment is used to look inside the nose and nasopharynx. Foreign bodies can be removed, cultures and biopsies are taken as needed.
