*On the axial computed tomography image, the lacrimal sac fossa was divided into the following 3 levels: upper, middle, and lower. Upper level, the first axial level showing the uppermost part of the lacrimal sac fossa; Middle level, mid-slice level between the 2 levels was designated as the middle level; Lower level, axial slice showing the lacrimal sac fossa just before joining the nasolacrimal duct.
