Hello,

A mucosal abnormality in the Maxillary sinuses is most probably a Mucosal thickening that can occur in a sinusitis.

Other mucosal abnormalities, like a Polyp in the Maxilarry sinus can be present but the MRI would mention it as a Maxillary Polyp.

You most probably have a sinusitis / had one when you had the MRI done.

Kind Regards,

Dr.Joshi

The mri was on my neck for a car accident this was mentioned in the rrport and said it was most noticable on left side I was not sick at the time of the mri nor did I have a cold.

A mucosal abnormality can be a thickening or a polyp or a fluid filled sinus.

A mucosal thickening can be present even without any overt signs and is commonly seen.

This is not a serious condition and you need not get worried about this.
