Hello and welcome to Conditional 1. My name is James Whittaker and I am an MRI Technologist from New Zealand with an interest in MRI Safety.
This time I’m going to be talking about an aspect of MRI Safety that has always been one of my favourites, throughout the 20+ years of my practice. I am of course, talking about Intra-orbital foreign bodies or IOFBs.
In this episode I hope to achieve three things. First, I’ll give a brief overview of the relevant anatomy of the eye, and it’s associated structures. Then I’ll describe some of the more common types of calcifications found within and around the eye and how they appear in imaging. And finally, I’ll tell you about the basic method I use to simplify differentiating between them.
Do you have any IOFB stories? I'd love to hear them.
