This study is to investigate and compare the changes of extraocular muscles in patients with active thyroid associated ophthalmopathy shown by T1ρ and T2 maps. The superior differential ability of T1ρ comparing to the currently used T2 mapping is encouraging and the flexibility in exploring the different in spin lock frequencies would be promising tool in evaluating the extraocular muscle changes with thyroid associated ophthalmopathy.
