Abstract

We have presented three cases of metastatic tumor to the orbit. Diagnostic techniques available in evaluation of these tumors include CT scan, magnetic resonance (MR) imaging, ultrasound, open biopsy, and fine-needle aspiration. Li et al., in an article that compared MR imaging, CT scan, and ultrasound concluded that MR imaging, with the use of the 0.15 T resistive magnet, offered no distinct advantage over the combination of CT and ultrasound in evaluation of patients with orbital tumors. They noted that the relationship between lesions and adjacent extraocular muscles was less well-defined with MR imaging than with CT scan, and they commented that ultrasonography provided a rapid, inexpensive method of examining the orbit without exposure to ionizing radiation. Ultrasonography's major disadvantage is its inability to define periorbital structures, its dependence on operators, and its limited ability to assess lesions of the orbital apex or adjacent orbital walls.
