Brain images of a quality lower than is conventionally acceptable may still be useful for planning hydrocephalus treatment. Low-field MRI is a technology of growing global interest which has the capability of producing images of sufficient quality for treatment planning and is affordable enough to disseminate to rural regions of the world. Though deep learning enhancement of low-quality images does improve CNR and apparent quality, spatial errors of brain and CSF after enhanced reconstruction add significant risk to treatment management and should be avoided.
