Magnetic resonance images of a screech owl (Otus asio) were acquired to identify the normal anatomic components of the eye'and orbit. T1-weighted, proton-density, and T2-weighted images were obtained in the straight sagittal, oblique dorsal, and oblique sagittal planes. Signal intensity for the various orbital structures differed between the three resonance techniques. T1-weighted images provided the best anatomic detail of ocular and orbital structures. The oblique dorsal and oblique sagittal planes were superior for evaluating the optic nerve in its entirety.
