FRANCISCO, Fabiano Celli et al. Evaluation of the lacrimal system by radiological methods. Radiol Bras [online]. 2007, vol.40, n.4, pp.273-278. ISSN 1678-7099.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0100-39842007000400014.

The authors perform a revisional and iconographic study of the lacrimal system by means of radiological methods, namely, conventional radiography, linear tomography, computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging. Image methods are essential to define diagnosis and therapy, considering that besides demonstrating alterations of the lacrimal system, they may indicate the patients with better prognosis associated with the surgical approach. Considering the lower cost, lower radiation dose, low rate of complications, and level of information that can be obtained dacryocystography by means of linear tomography is recommended as the initial investigation method.

Palavras-chave : Dacryocystography; Lacrimal system; Obstruction of the lacrimal system.
