Optic atrophy

Case contributed by A.Prof Frank Gaillard
MRI

This patient had remote optic neuritis with resultant optic atrophy on the right. Note the high T2 signal in the volume reduced right optic nerve.

At the chiasm the fibres are distributed to both optic tracts and therefore the asymmetry is no longer visible.
