PURPOSE To evaluate functional magnetic resonance imaging as an objective method for detecting visual dysfunction in various ophthalmologic disorders involving the optic nerve and the chiasm. METHODS We performed functional magnetic resonance imaging during monocular visual stimulation on seven patients with visual field loss caused by lesions of the optic nerve and the chiasm and on three normal control subjects with no visual field loss. We correlated static threshold perimetry in the seven… CONTINUE READING
