Measuring the stiffness of the brain provides important diagnostic information.Magnetic Resonance Elastography(MRE)is a noninvasive method to estimate the stiffness of the brain.This study aims to determine the correlation between intracranial pressures and whole brain stiffness.Our results demonstrated no significant difference in MRE derived brain stiffness to the opening and closing intracranial pressures measured by lumbar puncture in a pool of 7 patients.
