Case contributed by A.Prof Frank Gaillard


Tearful eye.

Patient Data:

Age: Adult
Modality: DSA (angiography)

Normal dacryocystogram, with free passage of contrast from the right inferior canaliculus into the nasal passage. 

Case Discussion:

Although intimidating to both radiologist and patient, dacryocytograms are simple to perform and generally simple to interpret, provided an understanding of the normal anatomy of the nasolacrimal duct is appreciated.
