Advances in medical imaging with computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) have markedly improved our ability to visualize orbital anatomy and pathology. The following section discusses the indications for orbital CT and MRI, the utility of intravenous contrast, and dynamic vascular imaging.
