[en] The popularity of upper airway imaging methods is largely determined by their contribution to the success of predictive models for alternative therapeutic treatment to CPAP, in OSA. If there is still not enough evidence to date that they can improve the outcome of snoring and sleep apnea surgery, it is clear that considerable progress can be expected in the coming years thanks to technological and digital advancements. The cephalometric analysis will certainly benefit from the 3-dimensional analytical capacity of tissue densities provided by Cone Beam tomography. Videoendoscopy could be largely improved by endoscopic long-range optical coherence tomography. At last, novel imaging techniques using computer methods for the prediction of the upper airway will also be of considerable help in decision making in patients with sleep-disordered breathing.
