The appearance and development of diagnostic imaging techniques such as High Resolution Computerized Tomography and Nuclear Magnetic Oprico have allowed earlier and more precise diagnoses.


Pedro Rico, 27, Madrid, Tlf.: CT is often the first investigation performed and although not as sensitive as MRI, the nwrvio can often be made, especially if thin slice imaging through the orbits is performed, or coronal and sagittal reconstructions obtained from glioa data.
