CSF Flow Visualization by Magnetic Resonance Imaging Techniques — Methods and Clinical Examples
It has been recognized that the circulation of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) plays a key role in several diseases of the central nervous system. The relative inaccessibility of the subarachnoid space has impeded the pace of investigations in this area. Until now invasive techniques, such as spinal puncture with application of contrast agents or intracranial pressure measurement, have been the mainstay of studies concerning CSF flow dynamics.
