Functional magnetic resonance imaging of horizontal rectus muscles in esotropia.
 

Author(s): Kirsta Schoeff, Zia Chaudhuri, Joseph L Demer

Journal: J AAPOS. 2013 Feb;17(1):16-21.

 

Monkey neurophysiology suggests that changes in neural drive rather than extraocular muscle structure underlie sensory-induced strabismus. If this is true, then extraocular muscle structure should be normal. We used magnetic resonance imaging to measure horizontal rectus muscle size ...
