This book presents a review of the clinical evaluation and management of orbital floor blowout fractures. Most of the emphasis and content is focused upon the radiographic diagnosis of orbital floor fractures.

In terms of his experience, the author documents the inadequacies of standard facial radiographic views and linear tomography. He devotes one chapter to the presentation of two new special orbital views which he designates as the "30° posterior/anterior" and the "20°/35° oblique." This special orbit series" is designed to enhance the view of the anterior, lateral, and posterior portions of the orbital floor and of the medial orbital wall. The author also presents a chapter on hypocycloidal tomography (polytomography) in which he discusses the advantages, limitations, and disadvantages of this technique.

One half of the book is devoted to the subject of contrast orbitography, the area in which the author is one of the pioneers and an expert.
