Purpose. To assess the possibilities of radiology diagnostics in patients with orbital trauma in postoperative period.
1 - I.M. Sechenov First Moscow State Medical University (Sechenov Uni-versity).
2 - Peoples' Friendship University of Russia. Mos-cow, Russia.

Materials and methods. From 2015 to 2018 years in the clinic of Sechenov University 72 patients (100%) with traumatic injuries were examined. All patients (n = 72, 100%) were di-agnosed with orbital trauma. After the admission all patients (n = 72, 100%) underwent multispiral computed to-mography (MSCT) before and after the operation using Toshiba Aquilion One 640 modality, volume mode, slice thickness – 0.5 mm, bone and soft tissue reconstruction. Results. According to MSCT data in postoperative period with orbital volumes were reconstructed and symmetrical compared to the other side in 48 patients (64%). In 24 cases (33%) orbital volumes weren’t reconstructed with remaining prolapse of orbital soft tissue structures in the maxillary sinus through the inferior orbital wall defect. Insufficient implan-tation of the inferior orbital wall prosthesis occurred in 7 patients (10%). Conclusion. MSCT is a method of choice in examining the patients with injuries of the midface. Computed tomography allows detailed determination of performed surgical treatment, to reveal the risk of postoperative complications and assess the dynamic of a pa-tient in late periods.

Keywords: MSCT, orbital trauma, soft tissue injury of the orbit, preoperative planning.
