SUMMARY: We describe the unique MR imaging characteristics of intraocular perfluoro-n-octane, a liquid used for intraoperative and postoperative tamponade in the context of complex retinal detachment repair, and contrast it with other intraocular pathologies. Because trace amounts of perfluoro-n-octane may be left in the globe postoperatively, it may be confused for other abnormalities, such as foreign bodies or tumors.
