Orbital Imaging

Mounir Bashour, M.D., C.M.


What is required when you order orbital mr studies

What is required when you order orbital MR studies?

  • 1.Surface coil (orbital or head coil) for better visualization of structures of the orbit

  • 2.Precontrast axial, coronal, and sagittal T1 -weighted images

  • 3.Axial, coronal T2-weighted images (fast spin-echo sequences)

  • 4.Postcontrast axial coronal T1 -weighted images with fat suppression techniques

  • 5. Sedation in children


What is the strategy in ordering imaging studies in a child with the diagnosis of retinoblastoma

What is the strategy in ordering imaging studies in a child with the diagnosis of retinoblastoma?

  • Diagnosis--Ca++ U/S +/- CT Scan

  • Extraocular ext. -- MRI orbits

  • Familial/Bilat --> MRI brain (pinealoblastoma)


Orbital imaging

What is the strategy in ordering imaging studies in an adult with the diagnosis of intraocular neoplasm?

  • U/S

  • IVFA/ICG

  • MRI--fat suppression


What are paramagnetic agents

What are paramagnetic agents?

  • shorten the intrinsic T1 and T2 relaxation times

  • increase the signal intensity

  • Melanin, methemoglobin, protein, and gadolinium


Orbital imaging

In which clinical situations are contrast-enhanced MR studies most helpful in the evaluation of a child with leukocoria?

  • To differentiate retinoblastoma from Coats' disease.


Orbital imaging

In which clinical situations are contrast-enhanced MR studies most helpful in the eval-uation of an adult with vitreous hemorrhage?

  • To differentiate a malignant melanoma of the choroid from a hemorrhagic retinal detachment in age-related macular/extramacular degeneration.


What are the indications for ordering ct orbital studies as a first choice

What are the indications for ordering CT orbital studies as a first choice?

  • 1.Evaluation of orbital trauma

  • 2.Detection of foreign body

  • 3.Detection of calcification

  • 4.Evaluation of osseous, cartilaginous, and fibroosseous lesions

  • 5.Evaluation of orbital soft tissue lesion with suspicion of bony erosion or detection

  • 6.Contraindication to MRI


What are the indications for ordering mr orbital studies as a first choice

What are the indications for ordering MR orbital studies as a first choice?

  • 1.Acute proptosis

  • 2.Suspicion of optic nerve sheath complex lesion

  • 3.Intraocular tumor with extraocular extension

  • 4.Detection of wood foreign body

  • 5.Contraindications to CT

  • 1.Dermoid cyst

  • 2.Lymphangioma

  • 3.Rhabdomyosarcoma

  • 4.Optic nerve glioma


Orbital imaging

Name the most common orbital lesions showing a well-circumscribed and sharply delineated appearance on CT and MRI in adults

  • 1.Cavernous hemangioma

  • 2.Neurofibroma

  • 3.Neurilemoma

  • 4.Fibrous histiocytoma

  • 5.Lymphoproliferative disorders


Name the most common orbital lesions showing an ill defined appearance on ct and mri in children

Name the most common orbital lesions showing an ill defined appearance on CT andMRI in adults

  • 1.Idiopathic orbital inflammation

  • 2.Metastasis

  • 3.Leukemic infiltrate

  • 4.Primary malignant tumor

Which are the ocular and orbital tissues that do not normally enhance on postcontrast mr studies

Which are the ocular and orbital tissues that do not normally enhance on postcontrast MR studies?

  • 1.Lens

  • 2.Vitreous

  • 3.Sclera

  • 4.Orbital fat

  • 5.Optic nerve sheath complex


Orbital imaging

In which clinical situation are contrast-enhanced MR studies most helpful in the evaluation of a patient with proptosis?

  • Well circumscribed lesions


What are the indications for mr angiography and carotid angiography when imaging orbital lesions

What are the indications for MR angiography and carotid angiography when imaging orbital lesions?

  • None


How can you differentiate optic nerve from optic nerve sheath lesions with ct and mr studies

How can you differentiate optic nerve from optic nerve sheath lesions with CT and MR studies?

  • MRI

  • Normal nerve does not demonstrate any enhancement

  • Optic nerve tumor or inflammation demonstrates central enhancement

  • Optic nerve sheath neoplasm or inflammation demonstrates peripheral enhancement

  • A cystic or hemorrhagic lesion does not enhance
