Abstract

An interleaved velocity-sensitised fast low-angle shot pulse sequence was used to study cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) flow in the cerebral aqueduct, and supratentorial CSF production in 9 patients with normal pressure hydrocephalus (NPH) and 9 healthy volunteers. The peak aqueduct CSF flow, both caudal and rostral, was significantly increased in patients with NPH. No significant difference in the supratentorial CSF production rate was found between patients (mean 0.60 +/- 0.59 ml/min) and healthy volunteers (mean 0.68 +/- 0.31 ml/min). Our method may be useful for investigation and monitoring of patients with NPH before and after ventriculoperitoneal shunt operations.
