COMPARATIVE EVALUATION OF REAL TIME B SCAN ULTRASOUND AND COMPUTED TOMOGRAPHY IN MANAGEMENT OF PENETRATING OCULAR AND ORBITAL TRAUMA

Col V K Baranwal

Abstract :

 139 patients with penetrating missile injuries to eye & orbit were managed in a forward hospital. These injuries were caused by fragments of improvised explosive devices, artillery shells & by bullets. They were evaluated clinically, by real time B scan ultrasound & CT Scan. The comparison of these two modern modalities of investigations were additive to one another as it was noted that ultrasound was more sensitive for diagnosing intraocular damage where as CT Scan was better for diagnosing orbital & intracranial damage. These were essential investigations for scientific management of penetrating ocular & orbital injuries.
