Phase-contrast MRI's Function in the Diagnosis of Abnormalities in Cerebrospinal Fluid Flow

Main Article Content

Anand Guddur


Phase and magnitude information are originally included in the signal. Anatomy and motion data may be visualized in the form of magnitude and phase pictures, respectively. The resulting correlation between CSF speed and greyscale intensity of each pixel is intuitive. The purpose of this research is to determine how well phase contrast MRI can identify various cerebrospinal fluid flow abnormalities. A prospective research design was used for this investigation. The research was place at the Radio-Diagnosis Division and lasted for 18 months. CSF pulsatility and stroke volume across the aqueduct have been associated to a positive response to shunting in individuals with normal pressure hydrocephalus, according to a recent study.
