The aim of this study was to assess proptosis measurement by MDCT and to compare it to the current standard, Hertel exophthalmometry.
Hertel exophthalmometry usually quantifies proptosis.
The aim of this study was to assess proptosis measurement by MDCT and to compare it with Hertel exophthalmometry as the current standard.
Normal exophthalmometry values: the need for calibrated exophthalmometers.
Complete neuroophthalmic examination included the visual acuity test, color vision test, visual field analysis (Goldman), pupillary reaction test, oculomotor nerve test, Hertel exophthalmometry
, and ophthalmoscopy of ocular fundus.
Upon examination, the right eye demonstrated proptosis (Hertel's exophthalmometry
measured the right corneal surface position at 22 mm and the left at 17 mm).
could not be precisely interpreted because of massive facial distortion.
Material has been added on exophthalmometry
and A-scan biometry.
Ultrasonography demonstrated moderate, generalized enlargement of the extraocular muscles in both orbits with normal exophthalmometry
Slit lamp biomicroscopy, ophthalmoscopy, Hertel's exophthalmometry
, (4) fields, color vision, forced-duction test, refraction, intra ocular pressure and examination of proptosis were also done.
