Patient Data

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.
