Abstract

Imaging is one the most critical parts of the clinical care. MRI becomes widely available as a powerful diagnostic tool for patients suffering from vision loss. The purpose of this clinically oriented presentation is to review: Clinical indications, key imaging findings of diseases involving the visual pathways and advanced MR techniques including diffusion weighted imaging (DWI), diffusion tensor imaging (DTI), magnetization transfer (MTR) and functional MRI. The presentation contains multiple hand drawn diagrams super-imposed on cross-sectional imaging, clinical MR images, correlating visual field maps and fundoscopic images. The review will be valuable to trainees, researchers and practicing clinical ophthalmologists. It may cover 30-60 minutes as deemed appropriate by the organizing committee.
