Abstract

Objectives-There are diseases that affect the stroma of the inferior turbinate and many surgical interventions that alter it. However, an objective method that can evaluate the turbinate's stromal structure in detail has not been defined yet. The primary aim of this study was to investigate the effectiveness and reliability of ultrasound elastography for objective evaluation of the inferior turbinate stroma and define the most suitable elastographic technique.
