Power and Limit of MRI: CSF & Cerebral Blood Flow
2019 CSF Hydrodynamics Symposium
OSLO, NORWAY - JULY 1-2, 2019
Dr. Olivier Balédent
describes, in detail, how this movement occurs. The flow of blood and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) have a huge effect on each other. But in the presence of disease, the flow of blood or CSF can be disordered and cause symptoms in patients.
Dr. Balédent describes how phase-contrast MRI (PCMRI) can be used to effectively measure CSF- and blood flows to help us learn more about what might qualify as "disordered" flow. Being able to measure these things in patients will help medical professionals better understand the difference between "normal" or "abnormal" CSF and cerebral blood flow. (2019)
This presentation was made possible thanks to a generous grant from The Monkton Institute and was presented at the 2019 CSF Hydrodynamics Symposium held in Oslo, Norway.
