This study demonstrates a new CSF flow imaging using multi spin echo acquisition cine imaging (MUSACI). MUSACI can obtain the high resolution CSF flow images more than the conventional phase contrast technique, moreover it is simple method because need not use a labeling pulse such as the time-SLIP technique. MUSACI can provide both morphological and physiologic information regarding CSF flow in a single scan.
