Role of MDCT in Evaluation of Orbital Lesions

Devi Mounika Bevara | S. Venkateswar Rao [2]

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.
