Diagnosis of Hydrocephalus by Computerized Tomography
Computerized tomography of the brain permits a correct visualisation of internal and external CSF spaces. EMI numbers of CSF are between -2 and +9, and are, therefore, significantly lower than those of normal brain with 12 to 18. The computer tomographic image using a gray scale presents CSF spaces as dark zones compared to those of brain.
