The optic radiation (OR) is a key brain fiber bundle of the visual system which must be spared as much as possible during resection of the temporal lobe in epilepsy surgery to prevent visual field defects. Therefore, it is of utmost importance to avoid underestimating its anterior location (Meyer’s loop) with diffusion MRI tractography. For this reason, it is critical that this part of the OR is reconstructed as accurately as possible. In this abstract, we demonstrate that standard diffusion MRI acquisitions potentially underestimate the true location of Meyer’s loop, when compared to state-of-the-art protocols.
