These patients were preoperatively evaluated with radiographic and endoscopic imaging; preoperative nasal resistance and nasal airway cross-sectional area values were measured and recorded with acoustic rhinometry
and rhinomanometry devices.
1) Moreover, these previous investigations primarily have used subjective parameters such as visual analogue scales (VAS) and quality-of-life questionnaires instead of objective measures such as acoustic rhinometry
Evaluation of nasal volume by acoustic rhinometry
before and after physical exercise.
Nasal histamine challenge in no allergic and allergic subject evaluated by acoustic rhinometry
Tonsils, ademoids and mouth breathing Several methods can be used to assess the size of the tonsils and adenoids such as endoscopy, lateral radiographs of the neck, acoustic rhinometry
and digital palpation.
To evaluate the effects of ENDS and the placebo ENDS on the nasal valve area, volunteers were submitted to acoustic rhinometry
using an Eccovision Acoustic Rhinometer, model AR 1003 (Hood Laboratories, Pembroke, MA, USA), as described by Fonseca et al.
When used on the nose, this technique is termed acoustic rhinometry
and does not provide information regarding the pharyngeal cross section.

PARTICIPANTS AND MEASUREMENTS: Twenty-nine volunteers provided symptom reports, ocular electromyograms, measurement of eye tear film break-up time, vital staining of the eye, nasal lavage, acoustic rhinometry
, transfer tests, and dynamic spirometry.

System to evaluate patients who have difficulty breathing because of nasal blockage.
was used to measure the minimum cross-sectional area (MCSA) and the volume of the nasal cavity on both the left and right sides before and after laryngectomy.
