    ACR Appropriateness Criteria Orbits Vision and Visual Loss.
    J Am Coll Radiol 2018 May;15(5S):S116-S131
    Specialty Chair, UC San Diego Health, San Diego, California.
    Visual loss can be the result of an abnormality anywhere along the visual pathway including the globe, optic nerve, optic chiasm, optic tract, thalamus, optic radiations or primary visual cortex. Appropriate imaging analysis of visual loss is facilitated by a compartmental approach that establishes a differential diagnosis on the basis of suspected lesion location and specific clinical features. CT and MRI are the primary imaging modalities used to evaluate patients with visual loss and are often complementary in evaluating these patients. Read More
