Diseases, disorders and alterations of the nasal airways are among the pathologies with the highest incidence in the world’s population, which in turn has a tremendous economic impact on the costs associated with global health systems.
Current diagnostic methods, such as active anterior rhinomanometry (AAR), peak inspiratory nasal flow (PIF) or acoustic rhinometry (AR), are invasive and do not provide sufficiently detailed information to accurately and reliably diagnose pathologies derived from nasal obstruction.
of the world’s population suffer from nasal obstruction.
ratio of failed nasal surgeries.
of annual economic losses to healthcare institutions.
annual dissatisfied patients.
Since the late 1990s, computational fluid mechanics (CFD) and virtual surgery techniques have been used for airflow analysis in the nasal cavities.
The main objective of these studies has been to improve our understanding of the mechanical behavior of the nasal cavity, and to use the information obtained from CFD analysis to help the ENT specialist in nasal diagnosis and surgery.
Did you know?
CFD technology is being used in a standardized way for the last 50 years in leading technology industries such as:
Flowgy was designed to help the ENT doctor to improve medical diagnosis and nasal surgery by providing objective and quantitative information about the patient’s nasal pathology and by predicting surgical results through virtual surgery techniques.
But How exactly can flowgy help you?
Easy! With CFD reports of the real air behavior in the upper airway, made directly from your patient’s CT scan.
Functional CFD Study
Functional analysis of the airflow in the nasal cavity from a CT scan of the patient, through computational fluid dynamics techniques.
The results obtained will provide the medical team with objective and quantitative information about the behavior of the air in the patient’s nasal anatomy, supporting the diagnosis and the medical professional’s decision making.

Virtual Surgery CFD Study
Customized analysis of the airflow in the nasal cavity from a patient’s CT scan.
This study allows you to modify the nasal anatomical structure of the patient (virtual surgery) and analyze whether the changes made will result in a functional improvement for the patient’s well-being.
