Elderly patients often present with ventriculomegaly, not only with normal aging, but also due to a multitude of neurological disorders. The aim of this work was to study the role of MR CSF flow studies in assessment of elderly patients with ventriculomegaly. We identified variable underlying causes of ventriculomegaly in 20 elderly subjects including communicating hydrocephalus, obstructive hydrocephalus, and age-related cerebral atrophy.
