Computerized Tomography of the Orbit and Sella Turcica

Computerized Tomography of the Orbit and Sella Turcica This article is only available in the PDF format. Download the PDF to view the article, as well as its associated figures and tables. Abstract In this day of rapid technologic advances, it often is difficult to provide texts that are illustrated by contemporary pictures. This disparity is especially evident in connection with books about computerized tomography (CT), where each new generation of equipment allows more detailed visualization of an anatomic part or pathologic process than previously available machines. Thus, while the authors say "the lacrimal gland, the superior ophthalmic vein, and the tendon of the superior oblique muscle are structures that are rarely visualized by horizontal CT"—which was true of images with first- and second-generation machines—we would be disappointed with the quality of the images if these parts were not clearly seen on a scan done with a fourth-generation device. Contents and arrangement of material as well as comprehensive summaries of findings in various orbital and sella diseases do make up for the illustration deficiencies.
