Conference paper


Computed tomography (CT) is an extremely valuable noninvasive method for evaluating orbital soft-tissue structures. The possibility of scanning in the coronal plane has added a new dimension to the study. Direct enlargement viewing of scans on the display console has disclosed minute anatomic and pathologic details.
