Learning objectives: Describe the relevant imaging anatomy of the orbit. Describe a systematic approach to CT evaluation of blunt and penetrating trauma of the orbit. Identify the common post­traumatic orbit lesions. Discuss potential pitfalls and mimics that can be mistaken for posttraumatic orbit lesions.

Background: •Knowledge of the potential injuries to the eye and their imaging correlates is essential to making an accurate and rapid radiologic diagnosis of posttraumatic orbital injury. •Computed tomography (CT) is considered to be the top choice for evaluating orbital trauma:   ⇒It provides a rapid an[...]

Findings and procedure details: •Computed  tomography  (CT)  is  the method  of  choice  for  evaluating  orbital trauma:   a. a fast method to perform b. readily available c. no special need for patient preparation d. the  eye  movement  do  not degrade  t[...]

Conclusion: •Facial  traumatized  patients  with  clinical suspicion of orbital injuries are usually firstevaluated  with spiral CT.   • the best protocol is to obtain thin-section (1-3 mm) axial CT scans  and  then  performing  multiplanar Reformation. &nb[...]
