High Resolution B-Scan Ultrasonography of the Orbit: II. Hemangiomas of the Orbit

High Resolution B-Scan Ultrasonography of the Orbit: II. Hemangiomas of the Orbit Abstract Hemangiomas are the most common of all orbital tumors. Certain characteristic features of cavernous hemangiomas on B-scan ultrasonography facilitate their preoperative recognition. These features include a regular contour, a rounded outline, a sharply defined anterior acoustic border, and relatively good sound transmission. Other hemangiomas show variable ultrasonic patterns, depending on whether or not they are encapsulated. High resolution B-scan ultrasonography, a safe, easily performed examination, can aid in the preoperative diagnosis of hemangiomas of the orbit. B-scan ultrasound can reliably demonstrate the nature and position of hemangiomas of the orbit, facilitating surgical management. References 1.

Abstract

Abstract Hemangiomas are the most common of all orbital tumors. Certain characteristic features of cavernous hemangiomas on B-scan ultrasonography facilitate their preoperative recognition. These features include a regular contour, a rounded outline, a sharply defined anterior acoustic border, and relatively good sound transmission. Other hemangiomas show variable ultrasonic patterns, depending on whether or not they are encapsulated. High resolution B-scan ultrasonography, a safe, easily performed examination, can aid in the preoperative diagnosis of hemangiomas of the orbit. B-scan ultrasound can reliably demonstrate the nature and position of hemangiomas of the orbit, facilitating surgical management. References 1.
