Eleven consecutive patients with a first episode of acute optic neuritis were evaluated, using conventional and magnetization transfer (MT) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), in order to assess the temporal evolution of optic nerve (ON) damage and to investigate the correlation of ON damage with visual outcome and electrophysiological parameters. Patients underwent neuroophthalmological, neurological, electrophysiological, and MRI assessments at baseline and after three and 12 months. ON volumes… CONTINUE READING
