Optimal diagnostic tool of facial bone fractures is computed tomography(CT). When we diagnosed the facial bone fracture, we routinely used axial & coronal view of CT. But, development of software related CT enabled the application of various views recently. The purpose of this study is to evaluate about usefulness of sagittal view of the CT. Group I was the axial & coronal views about 15 patients with orbital floor fracture. Group II was the axial, coronal & sagittal views about same 15 patients. We asked 4 senior residents of department of plastic reconstructive surgery & ophthalmology, Yeungnam university hospital question about their confidence and usefulness. Compared with group II to group I, group II was more useful result. Using Pearson's chi-square test, statistical significance was checked (p<.05) about almost questions. It means that sagittal view is useful tool for orbital floor fracture.
