Correlation of visual field loss with MRI findings in patients with pituitary tumours

Lueck, Christian; Kane, Emily; Ashton, David; Mews, Peter; Reid, Kate; Neely, Andrew

Description

Introduction The exact mechanism that gives rise to bi-temporal hemianopia in chiasmal compression by pituitary tumours is currently unknown. One theory suggests that, because crossing fibres cross each other and therefore have less contact area, they experience greater stress from compressive forces than those experienced by uncrossed fibres (which have a larger contact area). Finite element modelling has been used has been used to investigate this in silico but the hypothesis needs testing in...[Show more]
