The recently developed magnetic resonance technique of diffusion tensor imaging (DTI), is used clinically to trace the structure of white fiber tracts in the human brain. This novel imaging technique that derives microstructural and physiological features of tissues has many potential immediate practical applications. The focus of this paper is to improve our understanding of the relationships between brain structure and function, using pre- and post-operative assessment in patients with anterior visual pathway compression.
