Glaucoma is characterized by progressive degeneration of retinal ganglion cells (RGC) and lateral geniculate nucleus (LGN). High resolution 7T MR image were able to show markedly improved images of the LGN. In this study, we were directly investigated height and volume changes in the LGN between the normal controls and glaucoma patients by using 7.0T MRI. All the height and volume measurements were corrected by the AC(anterior commissure)-PD(posterior commissure) line.
