The aim of this study was to assess the relationship between neuro-fluids dynamic and microstructure architecture of white matter fibers in hydrocephalus patients. Twenty-eight hydrocephalus patients underwent simultaneously diffusion tensor and phase contrast imaging. A statistical correlation between diffusion and flow parameters has shown a biological causal relationship between abnormal brain neuro-fluids dynamic and white matter alterations in hydrocephalus patients.
