FACOTOMY - PHACOTOMY - nancygirlPosted: Feb 01, 2010
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 [ In Reply To ..]
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 [ In Reply To ..]
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.
