Detecting structural abnormalities in the optic chiasm in individuals with albinism

Takeaway

  • Structural abnormalities in the optic chiasm was observed using diffusion magnetic resonance imaging (dMRI).

Why this matters

    Optic chiasm is an area where the crossing and non-crossing of optic fibers can be differentiated, and it is a crucial component for vision. The results of this study provide evidence that dMRI imaging of the optic chiasm may be used to diagnose albinism.
