[Magnetic resonance tomographic differentiation of ocular muscle changes in endocrine orbitopathy].


In 50 patients with Graves' Ophthalmopathy and 9 controls both orbits were examined by MR Imaging at 0.5 Tesla using a surface coil. T1-weighted spin-echo images were obtained in transverse and coronal orientation; additionally, a T2-image was calculated from a multi-echo sequence (8 echoes). Signal intensity of eye muscles on both T1-weighted and T2… (More)
