Abstract

Sixty subjects, including 12 normal volunteers, have been studied using the Aberdeen 0·08 T magnetic resonance imager. A wide range of pathological conditions, including both ocular and orbital disease, have been examined using a specialized binocular surface coil. The images produced using this coil are superior to those made with a head coil and have the advantage of demonstrating both eyes simultaneously. Each patient has been studied using a pulse sequence combining alternate saturation-recovery and inversion-recovery pulses. The resultant short time-to-inversion inversion-recovery and saturationrecovery images have been shown to be accurate in demonstrating the normal anatomy of the globe and orbit and for the demonstration of a wide range of disease states.
