PURPOSE Primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG) is a common ocular disorder with progressive retinal ganglion cell loss. This study explored the application of wide view fMRI to evaluate neural activity of the whole visual cortex and its relation with visual field functions in POAG patients. METHODS Nine subjects with diagnosed POAG (age: 59.9±10.9 y.o., 4 males) and nine age-matched healthy volunteers (age: 58.0±4.6 y.o., 6 males) were scanned on a 3T Siemens scanner. For each subject, wide view… CONTINUE READING
