Anterior visual pathway assessment by magnetic resonance imaging in normal-pressure glaucoma
Acta Ophthalmologica, 04/13/2012
Zhang YQ et al. – Patients with normal–pressure glaucoma show an age–adjusted reduced optic nerve diameter, optic chiasm height and lateral geniculate nucleus volume as measured by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), correlating with a reduced retinal nerve fibre layer thickness and increased perimetric loss. MRI may be applied to examine the optic nerve in patients with glaucoma with opaque optic media.
