OBJECTIVE To study the thickness and width of extraocular muscles by high-resolution magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). METHODS Cross-sectional study. Sixty eight normal subjects between 2.0 and 50.0 years of age, mean age was (21.2 ± 2.1) (SD) years old, male 34, female 34. Extraocular muscles in the orbits were scanned with SE/T2WI coronal and(More)
