Normal cerebrospinal fluid pulsations in the region of the spine on phase-contrast magnetic resonance images

U.M. Mauer, M. Schirrmann & B. Danz
Objective: Numerous theories have attempted to explain the location and velocity of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) pulsations in the spinal canal. Cardiac-gated magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) can provide evidence that may prove or disprove these theories. Methods: Seventeen patients (5 women, 12 men;[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
