Possibilities of CT-imaging for functional diagnostic of nasal airways are described. The analytical and numerical methods for evaluation of nasal air flow speed and differential pressure in nasal cavity are proposed. Possibilities and perspectives of these methods for precision functional diagnostic of nasal diseases, surgery planning and verification for endonasal plastic interventions are discussed. Diagnostic imaging and actual parameters for evidence based otorinolaringology are proposed.
