BACKGROUND: Postoperative visual recovery in patients with pituitary adenoma can be influenced by the duration of symptoms, age, and tumor volume. Diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) allows visualization of white matter structure along with quantitative information. The aims of our study were to predict the visual recovery process in the early and long-term periods and to define the parameters affecting the recovery course.
