A study was performed to demonstrate the prevalence and relationship between the existence and size of these cells with ipsilateral maxillary sinusitis and orbital floor dehiscence as visualized on cone beam CT (CBCT) images. The explanation of maxillary sinusitis on the basis of mechanical obstruction is unlikely. This study provides evidence for the usefulness of CBCT scan in delineation of the sinonasal anatomy.

3D computed tomographic analysis of changes to the external features of the nose after maxillary expansion

A study in the American Journal of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics, aimed to evaluate changes to the external shape and form of the nose after surgically assisted rapid maxillary expansion and orthodontic treatment.
The study concluded that after surgically assisted rapid maxillary expansion, the most obvious changes to the external features of the nose were at the most lateral alar bases. The difference in lateral displacement profoundly influenced the perception of a more rounded nose.
