Facial Bone CT

There is right intraorbital gas and a trace of right ethmoid air cell haemorrhage adjacent to a subtle fracture of the medial orbital wall. 

Case Discussion

This case of right medial orbital wall fracture emphasises how by detecting gas outside of the paranasal sinuses and haemorrhage within the paranasal sinuses you can often track down even the most tiny facial fracture.
