Caldwell View Sinus

Fig. 13.5a The Caldwell view is obtained by placing the nose and forehead of the patient against the x-ray cassette and by tilting the tube caudally. The image depicts the frontal, ethmoidal, and sphenoid sinuses. The overlying petrosal bone masks the maxillary sinus. By the way, you can see the superior orbital fissure and the round foramen beautifully on this projection. Do you remember which structures run through these openings? b

The Waters view is obtained with the chin raised and placed on the x-ray cassette and with the nose 1-1.5 cm off the plate while the x-ray beam stands perpendicular to the cassette. In this projection the frontal and maxillary sinuses as well as the nasal cavity are well appreciated. In this patient there is a cutaneous swelling on the left due to trauma.

Ethmoid Sinus Water View

Fig. 13.6 There is loss of normal radiolucency of the left maxillary sinus. The nasal cavity also appears to be too dense. Is it also expanded? Just to bug you—the oval foramen is well visible on the right side (arrow). The small foramen spinosum immediately lateral to it makes it easy to differentiate from other openings. Which nerve runs through this foramen? Which CSF-filled structure lies directly behind it?
