Abstract

An ophthalmologist has the advantage that the most frequent pathological findings can be seen directly or imaged by means of light. Nevertheless, ophthalmologists sometimes also need to use additional imaging procedures, though less frequently than a neurologist, for example. Here, we will discuss conventional radiography, digital radiography, computed tomography (CT), and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
