Determination Of Sensitivity And Specificity Of Multidetector Computed Tomography (MDCT) In The Evaluation Of Orbital Tumors In Adult

Abstract: Introduction: Orbital neoplasm in adult comprises a broad spectrum of benign and malignant entities. Cross-sectional imaging plays a valuable role in characterization of these lesions and in evaluation of disease extent, supplementing clinical, ophthalmologic examination and providing information beyond what can be seen at fundoscopy. With modern CT scanning techniques and the dramatic improvement in resolution, the majority of questions raised by the practicing ophthalmologist are answered by a non-invasive imaging modality like multi detector CT scan. Objective: This was a prospective study to find out the sensitivity, specificity, accuracy, positive predictive value (PPV) and negative predictive value (NPV) of Multi Detector Computed Tomography (MDCT) in the diagnosis of orbital tumors in adult patients.
