Magnetic resonance (MR) images were acquired in 5 dogs and one cat with ocular and orbital disease. MR images were obtained in the dorsal or oblique dorsal, and oblique sagittal planes. Pathological changes identified in MR images included inflammatory lesions, cystic structures, and neoplasms. All abnormalities were readily apparent in T1-weighted images. MR findings in affected animals were often similar in signal intensity, location, and growth pattern to those found in humans with comparable diseases. Although no MR changes were considered pathognomonic for a given disease, MR imaging provided detailed information on the homogeneity, extent and invasiveness of the lesions.
