HISTORY OF INASOPRS

HISTORY In the 1980’s, the science of orbital cavity and its soft tissues had not yet fully developed in many countries of the world, including Indonesia.

Therefore, the accuracy of intervention can only be achieved through history taking or anamnesis and X-ray photos. With the invention of USG technology and CT-scan, what was previously hidden inside the orbital cavity came to be revealed, in the form of various soft tissues.

Another important development took place in 1986, when the Oculoplastic Reconstruction and Orbital Staffs (Dr. Hadisudjono, Dr. Darmayanti, Dr. Lakshmi, Dr. Rianti) were included in cranioplast...
