The intracranial cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) increase is
frequently seen in the ventricles or in the subarachnoid
spaces of children. In number of cases, morphological
images cant conclude if it is a passive or active
dilatation. The aim of this work was to see if the CSF
hydrodynamic can bring complementary information to
study pediatric population with a CSF volume increase.
This phase contrast MRI study shows the absence of
correlation between the dynamic of the CSF and its
volume in the global population. The CSF oscillations
bring complementary information concerning the active
aspect of the CSF dilatation.
