Oculodynamic MRI recordings can be obtained as an addition to routine MRI recordings in 30 additional seconds. I will show examples of these eye movements, correlate them to clinical findings and expand on how this may help
in the treatment of patients. For instance, presence or absence of impingement can be seen dynamically and treatment of trauma or tumors may be planed accordingly. 3-D visualization demonstrates bulbar and global EOM layers. Orbital
nerves and vascular structures can be analyzed using special positions of the clipping plane. Both parts of the lacrimal gland can be visualized in detail. In TAO the marked enlargement of the lacrimal gland, the EOM and the orbital fat can be appreciated in 3D. Thus odMRI and detailed 3D rendering of the orbit offer exciting new diagnostic and therapeutic potential.
