Orbit Roentgenology, edited by Dr Arger, is one book in the series of Diagnostic and Therapeutic Radiology. This series is designed to provide edited volumes that summarize the current pertinent clinical and radiologic aspects of specific topics, which are rapidly changing or lack an upto-date, integrated reference source. Because of the rapidly changing, imaging technologies that relate to the orbit, the subject of the current volume is particularly appropriate in this series. The traditional plain x-ray film evaluation of the orbit is being rapidly replaced by multiple newer techniques. Prior to this work, there has been no single source of information that covered all modalities.

The book is an edited volume with 15 contributors who are all recognized as extremely knowledgeable in their particular field. Because of the multiauthor format, there are some gaps and duplication, but editing has kept this to a minimum.

The initial chapters are excellent reviews
