Why did you start using the CFD studies of Flowgy?

I needed an objective and reliable way to evaluate the air flow through the nostrils.

What were you using before Flowgy?

Clinical exploration, Glatzel's mirror, acoustic rhinometry, imaging techniques (CT)

What has Flowgy enabled you to do?

An objective and complete functional study of the patient's nostrils. The possibility to perform a virtual surgery and to be able to predict the results of the surgery I would have performed (or will perform) on the patient.

What does Flowgy help you with most?

I get a more objective idea of the situation of each case, and also in case of surgery it allows me to adapt it to the patient in order to achieve the best possible results. It is also important to note that in some cases it allows me to decide not to operate.

How do your patients feel about CFD studies?

In general they are satisfied.
