In this study, we evaluated the frequency characteristics of the apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) wave form in the cardiac cycle of the brain in idiopathic normal pressure hydrocephalus (iNPH). iNPH is associated with higher ADC amplitude with a wide frequency range. The Fourier analysis of ADC change in the cardiac cycle in iNPH makes it possible to noninvasively obtain a more detailed information regarding the intracranial state in iNPH.
