Growth disorders such as microorbitism, Binder syndrome, Romberg syndrome, and radiation effects are often difficult to quantify because they have unpredictable rates of distortion with time. The three-dimensional appreciation of the deformity needs to be imaged sequentially over a period of time. It is important to consider volume measurements, particularly of the orbits, for these disease entities, as well as shape analyses with comparisons made between normal and abnormal sides.
