Evaluation of corpus geniculatum laterale and vitreous fluid by magnetic resonance spectroscopy in patients with glaucoma; a preliminary study

Eye, 06/12/2012

Determining increased Glx/Cr ratios in both the vitreous and LGB of glaucoma patients, supports the theory of apoptosis in the etiopathogenesis of glaucoma. The MRS method, which can measure biochemical structures and metabolites of tissues, and also shows on a single spectrum, may be a new and non–invasive method for confirming the diagnosis of glaucoma and the role of apoptosis in the etiopathogenesis of glaucoma.
