Computed axial tomography localization of intra-orbital foreign body.

M S Mandelcorn, M Brown

PMID: 698891

Computed axial tomography showed that it lay beside a swollen and probably lacerated optic nerve. The advantages of CT scanning in the investigation of intra-orbital foreign bodies are outlined.
