Conference paper


Since the works of Ambrose (1), Gawler (2) and Moseley (3), very many authors have specially studied normal and pathological orbital CT anatomy. Improved CT systems allow a much better approach of the orbito-facial region. This study deals with i/normal macroscopic, ii/biometric an iii/densitometric orbital anatomy.
