MR Measurement of Cerebrospinal Fluid Velocity Wave Speed in the Spinal Canal
Noninvasive measurement of the speed with which the cere-brospinal fluid (CSF) velocity wave travels through the spinal canal is of interest as a potential indicator of CSF system pressure and compliance, both of which may play a role in the development of craniospinal diseases. However, measurement of CSF velocity wave speed (VWS) has eluded researchers primarily due to either a lack of access to CSF velocity measurements or poor temporal resolution.
