In the past 20 years, CT and MR Imaging have emerged as the primary modalities for the evaluation of orbital disease. One can safely say that plain films have no role in the detailed evaluation of disorders of this morphological area. Given the bony enclosure, small size, soft tissue and fat content of this region, as well as globe movement, obtaining high-quality images of the orbit can be technically challenging. Our aim in this article, is to provide specific parameters for properly evaluating the orbit with CT and MRI.
