What is Nasal Endoscopy?

Nasal endoscopy is the use of a thin, flexible tube (called a ‘scope’) that is inserted into the nostril to examine the structures of the nose. The scope contains a fiber optic light and a camera that allow a physician to see much more of the nasal passages, airways, and sinuses than is possible with a standard nasal exam.

A nasal endoscopy is typically performed by an otolaryngologist (or ENT) in their office. It may be performed for a variety of reasons, but some common ones include:
  • Sinus infections
  • Nasal polyps
  • Frequent nosebleeds
  • Persistent stuffiness
  • Obstruction in the nose
  • Suspected tumor in the nasal passages

In most cases, a medication containing a decongestant and anesthetic is sprayed into the nose before the scope is inserted. The doctor uses the scope to examine any problem areas. If necessary, most scopes allow for tiny tools to be inserted and used to removed tissue or take samples. Nasal endoscopy is a very safe and relatively easy procedure.
