Examination Techniques for the Orbit

  1. When an Orbital Mass is detacted, what are the TOPOGRAPHICAL properties that are assessed for lesion differentiation?
    • Location: Postion,
    • meridaians,
    • Shape,
    • Borders,
    • Contour abnormalities - Bone: Excavation, defects, or hyperostosis; Globe: Indentation or flattening
  2. When an Orbital Mass is detected  what are the QUANTITATIVE properties that are assessed for lesion differentiation?
    • Internal reflectivity: Spike height,
    • Internal structure: Histologic architecture,
    • Sound attenuation: Absorption or shawdowing
  3. When an Orbital Mass is detected  what are the KINETIC properties that are assessed for lesion differentiation?
    • Consistency: Soft vs. hard,
    • Vascularity: Blood flow,
    • Mobility: Of lesion or it contents
