A persistent dorsal ophthalmic artery (OA) is a rare variation that originates from the cavernous segment of the internal carotid artery (ICA) and enters the orbit via the superior orbital fissure (SOF). Occasionally, the OA also arises from the middle meningeal artery (MMA) and enters the orbit via the SOF. These two major variations of the OA have not been well described by magnetic resonance (MR) angiography. We evaluated their prevalence on MR angiography at 3 T. We retrospectively reviewed… CONTINUE READING
