Functional magnetic resonance imaging. Application to degenerative brain disease and hydrocephalus

Neuroimaging Clinics of North America

Abstract

Magnetic resonance (MR) imaging, in addition to its excellent depiction of neuroanatomy, is being developed as a major technique for functional imaging of cerebrospinal fluid motion and for measurement of velocity, strain, and diffusional processes within the brain parenchyma. Functional MR imaging studies are revealing basic physiology of blood flow interactions with CSF motion and dynamic processes of brain parenchyma. Normal pressure hydrocephalus and degenerative brain disease are current focuses of functional MR imaging studies.
