    Occipitomental (OM) view showing air within the right orbit and a convex mass projecting into the roof of the right maxillary sinus.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Facial views demonstrating the orbits;

    OM 20 view showing air within the right orbit and a convex mass projecting into the roof of the right maxillary sinus.

  • Figure 2
    Coronal CT scans of the orbits
     

    There is some opacification of the right ethmoid sinuses and probably fracture of the medial orbital wall. The orbital rim is intact.
