Conventional contrast-enhanced T1WI is a useful tool for evaluating the choroid but can not be used to evaluate the retina due to its small blood supply. Contrast-enhanced T2 fluid-attenuated inversion recovery imaging(CE-T2FLAIR)is sensitive to low-concentration MRI contrast;however,its role in the diagnosis of macular edema has not been described. A patient with macular edema caused by retinal vein occlusion was diagnosed by CE-T2FLAIR in the Hainan Branch of Chinese PLA General Hospital from July 20,2017 to August 4,2017,and our findings confirmed that CE-T2FLAIR could provide valuable imaging evidence for the diagnosis and evaluation of macular edema.

Key words: macular edema, magnetic resonance imaging, fluid-attenuated inversion recovery imaging, diagnosis
