Abstract: The orbit is the site of large number of pathologies of diverse etiologies and imaging has to be tailored to the symptoms and clinical findings.MDCT is the first-line imaging modality for orbital evaluation in acute setting.CT offers rapid image acquisition and high spatial resolution and is suitable in the assessment of fractures, calcifications, bone destruction and radio-opaque foreign bodies. Objectives: 1.To evaluate efficacy of MDCT in assessing orbital diseases.2.To determine the site and extent of tumour, for appropriate treatment including surgery whenever necessary. Material and Methods: This study of MDCT evaluation of orbital diseases with clinical and pathological correlation was conducted on 32 patients at Department of Radiodiagnosis, ASRAM medical college, ELURU for a period of 2 years from December 2017 to December 2019 with suspicion of orbital lesion by ophthalmologist performed using CT scanner GE Revolution ACT Interpretation and Conclusion: CT is very effective in arriving at a diagnosis. CT is very effective in finding out the site and extent of tumor and thus helps in arriving at a diagnosis and very useful in further planning for the treatment.
