PURPOSE To compare helical CT to conventional CT imaging in the assessment of orbital metallic foreign bodies with regard to image quality, scanning time, and radiation exposure. METHODS Twenty-four standardized metallic foreign bodies, placed into the orbit (anterior, epibulbar, posterior) of cadaver heads were studied. Helical CT scanning in the axial plane with multiplanar reconstruction of coronal and sagittal images was performed as well as conventional CT imaging with direct scanning in… CONTINUE READING

To compare helical CT to conventional CT imaging in the assessment of orbital metallic foreign bodies with regard to image quality , scanning time , and radiation exposure . METHODS .
Helical CT is superior to conventional CT imaging , because it can provide adequate information about orbital metallic foreign bodies with a single acquisition , thus reducing both the number of examinations and the radiation exposure for the patient .
