ABSTRACT: Perfluorodecalin (PFD) was demonstrated in a human eye with fluorine-19 magnetic resonance (MR) imaging by employing a standard two-dimensional fast low-angle shot (FLASH) sequence. The presence and intraocular distribution of PFD were revealed despite the posterior eye segment being obscured by a narrow pupil, multiple small intraocular gas bubbles, and an intraocular hemorrhage. This examination can be performed with standard sequences on MR imaging systems equipped with a fluorine channel.
