OBJECTIVE This study aimed to compare the effectiveness of helical computed tomography (CT) versus conventional CT in the preoperative assessment of metallic intraocular foreign bodies on axial, coronal, and multiplanar reconstruction images in clinical routine. DESIGN Prospective comparative trial, alternate assignment of consecutive patients. PARTICIPANTS Eighteen patients with penetrating eye injuries and suspected metallic intraocular foreign bodies were studied. INTERVENTION… CONTINUE READING
