It has been reported that suprasellar tumors affect patients’ visual field and visual functional network. In this study, longitudinal brain morphometric assessment was performed pre- and post-operation based on 13 suprasellar tumors patients. The gray matter volume of rectus increases, but insular, caudate, and putamen decrease after operation. In addition, the gray matter volume can be predicted by tumor chiasmal lift length. What’s more, at the high-level visual cortex, the surface thickness becomes thicker after operation. We believe this study can improve the preoperative and postoperative assessment of suprasellar tumors in the future.
