Imaging Studies

For significant trauma or large invasive tumors, consider imaging studies to exclude involvement of adjacent structures, such as orbit soft tissue, orbital bones, nose, sinuses, and zygoma.

  • CT scan of orbits and sinuses is the best imaging modality when looking at bony involvement.
  • MRI is the best imaging modality when looking at soft tissue involvement.

Lacrimal system exploration: Irrigation and possibly intubation may be necessary for protection or repair of the lacrimal drainage system, especially in medial trauma cases.
