Imaging plays an important role in diagnosing most orbital conditions. Imaging modalities commonly employed in orbital imaging are ultrasound, computed tomography, and magnetic resonance imaging. Conventional radiography plays a small role in imaging the orbits, particularly in rural areas in low-income countries such as Sudan. In this review, we will classify orbital conditions according to the systemic surgical sieve. Ophthalmologists need to understand the role and nature of each imaging modality to use the most appropriate investigation for a particular patient or condition. When requesting an imaging study, the radiologist needs to get full clinical information, including the surgical history, previous investigations, and a well-formulated question regarding what the clinician expects and wants.
