Abstract

Computational fluid dynamic (CFD) simulations have provided detailed information about the complex flow and pressure field within the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) system. The solutions of these simulations are sensitive to boundary conditions and thus need validation with in vivo measurements. However, validation of CFD flow results and MRI CSF flow measurements have been limited to through-plane pcMR measurements.
