Purpose of review Radiologic imaging is indispensible for the diagnosis and management of many neuro-ophthalmologic conditions. Advances in the radioimaging of neuro-ophthalmolgic disorders may evolve from the clinical or the radiological side, meaning there is a constant stream of new information for the clinician. Recent findings Functional MRI, diffusion tensor MRI, magnetization transfer imaging, and magnetic resonance spectroscopy are examples of non-standard radiographic techniques which have expanded the knowledge of neuro-ophthalmologic conditions. Studies using conventional MRI have also led to advances in understanding optic neuropathies, the ocular motor system, pseudotumor cerebri, posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome and migraine. Summary This article discusses recent radiologic advances relevant to neuro-ophthalmology.
