      Rhinoscopy is an examination of the nasal cavity, performed by means of a special thin tube-like instrument called rhinoscope. A rhinoscope is equipped with a lamp, so that the doctor can observe the nasal cavity. Usually rhinoscopy is performed in two stages – anterior rhinoscopy and posterior rhinoscopy. For anterior rhinoscopy, the rhinoscope is inserted through the left and right nostrils; posterior rhinoscopy is performed by inserting the rhinoscope via the mouth in order to examine the back of the nasal cavity from behind the soft palate.
