Caption: Infected maxillary sinuses. Coloured computed tomography (CT) scan through the front of the head, at the level of the maxillary sinuses, of a patient with sinusitis (inflammation of the paranasal sinuses). Such inflammation is often due to infection. This is an axial slice, passing horizontally through the head, with the front of the head at top. The two maxillary sinuses, located in the maxillae (the cheekbones), are the black spaces at right and left, either side of the nose. The paranasal sinuses are membrane-lined air-filled spaces in the bones of the face. They drain mucus into the nose and throat. Here, both sinuses are inflamed, but the one at right is filled with more mucus than the one at left.
