Title:
Measurement of the Optic Nerve Sheath Diameter in Children: Comparison Between Transbulbar Sonography and Magnetic Resonance Imaging. 
Abstract:
PURPOSE: To evaluate the accuracy of measurements of the optic nerve sheath diameter (ONSD) in children by comparing transbulbar sonography with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). MATERIALS AND METHODS: 65 children (age: 3 mo-17 y; mean age: 11.3 y) underwent MR imaging of the brain including a heavily T 2-w sequence of the orbit and transbulbar sonography using a 17 MHz linear array transducer. Measurements of the ONSD were performed retrospectively by two experienced readers and all images wer...    »
