Radiodiagnostic examination methods found and established their place in ophthalmology due to their objectivity and possibilities of radiotherapy methods. Within ophthalmology, radiology has become dominant, relevant, sovereign, unrivalled, indispensable and without competition.
The paper aims to identify and present new radiology trends in ophthalmology today. The paper is based on the knowledge and experience of the author and co-authors gained through many years of professional work, multiannual collection of material, papers published in relevant national and international journals, collection of radiological images of pathological conditions, and diseases of the eye and orbit consisting of analog and digital radiographs, echotomograms, computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging scans, schemes, etc., patients’ histories of the disease and literature reviews.
The results of the paper show possibilities and advantages of certain radiological methods in ophthalmology by presenting individual radiological methods. They include: digital radiography, computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, magnetic resonance spectroscopy, radiology knife, gamma knife, radiology information system, mobile radiology, and radiology through mobile phones.
The authors conclude that it is difficult to assess in which direction further integration of radiology and ophthalmology will develop, but it is certain that permeated and united together, radiology and ophthalmology receive a futuristic dimension and lead to the preservation of health, eyes and glance that reveals everything.Acta Ophthalmologica 2016;42(2):10-19.
