Ultrasound of Orbit Tumors and Tumorlike Lesions
Atlas of Orbital Imaging
Simon, Guy Ben , Greenberg, Gahl , Prat, Daphna Landau
Ultrasound is a noninvasive, first-line imaging method for orbital disease, providing accurate detection and tissue differentiation of orbital and periorbital pathologies. The dynamic nature of the exam allows to establish the kinetic characteristics of the lesions such as its consistency and vascularity. Moreover, ultrasound is a nonionizing, cost-effective, and readily available imaging technique. However, it requires a high level of expertise to perform and interpret.
