• We used magnetic resonance imaging to map the human lateral geniculate body. The optimal imaging plane was determined by obtaining axial and coronal scans in two normal brains obtained at autopsy. The brain specimens were then sectioned and individual slices were compared with matching magnetic resonance images. After the lateral geniculate body was identified using this correlative anatomic approach, the nucleus was imaged in four normal subjects.
