I am typing brain CT - bilateral orbits show evidence of facotomy/phacotomy - cannot find this -

phakotomy is cataract removal w/aspiration - hope someone doing rad chimes in

I put in your word of phacotomy and Google pulled up phakectomy but also showed this meaning assigned to phakotomy. phaco = shaped liked lens and otomy = to incise into

Need more information - Anon

Phakic refers refers to eye containing the natural lens.

Is this term very clear to you from the dictator? Sometimes it will be dictated again in the impression.

I would like to help.
