Although postmortem morphological changes in the lateral geniculate nucleus (LGN) have been reported in human amblyopia, LGN function during monocular viewing by amblyopic eyes has not been documented in humans. We used functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to study monocular visual activation of the LGN in a patient with anisometropic amblyopia.(More)
PURPOSE Malignant ureteral obstruction often necessitates chronic urinary diversion and is associated with high rates of failure with traditional ureteral stents. We evaluated the outcomes of a metallic stent placed for malignant ureteral obstruction and determined the impact of risk factors previously associated with increased failure rates of traditional(More)
We studied functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) of visual cortex during checkerboard visual stimulation with three standard check sizes to examine whether activation in the visual cortex varied among these sizes. We acquired fMRI at 1.5 T in 8 normal subjects, each receiving the best refractive correction. Each subject underwent an experiment(More)
PURPOSE To develop a functional MRI method for producing eye dominance histograms in humans at 1.5 Tesla (T). METHODS In the first set of experiments, 8 normal persons were tested. The eye dominance of each voxel within the person's visually activated primary visual cortex was determined with Student t statistics during a left eye versus right eye(More)
