Computed tomographic digital data and special off-line computer graphic analysis were used to measure volumes of normal orbital soft tissue, extraocular muscle, orbital fat, and total bony orbit in vivo in 29 patients (58 orbits). The upper limits of normal for adult bony orbit, soft tissue exclusive of the globe, orbital fat, and muscle are 30.1 cm3, 20.0 cm3, 14.4 cm3, and 6.5 cm3, respectively. There are small differences in men as a group compared with women but minimal difference between… CONTINUE READING
