PURPOSE Our goal was to characterize the MR features of orbital Wegener granulomatosis (WG). METHOD Twelve patients with pathologically proven WG were studied with MRI. Enhanced and unenhanced T1-weighted sequences with conventional and fat-suppressed techniques were used. T2-weighted images were also obtained. Signal intensity measurements were made in each orbital lesion on the T2-weighted images and compared with that of normal fat. The degree of enhancement was also evaluated by measuring… CONTINUE READING
