The goal of this study was to acquire mid-sagittal cine DENSE images to quantify displacement and strain over the cardiac cycle in patients with Chiari malformation and age-matched controls. The major finding of this study was that both tissue displacement and tissue strain in the parenchyma of the cerebellum was significantly greater in patients with Chiari malformation than healthy controls.
