PURPOSE Whether Meyer's loop (ML) tracking using diffusion tensor imaging tractography (DTIT) can be utilized to avoid post-operative visual field deficits (VFD) after anterior temporal lobectomy (ATL) for drug-resistant temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE) using a large cohort of controls and patients. Also, we wanted to create a normative atlas of ML in normal(More)
