Changes of viscoelastic properties of brain tissue in normal pressure hydrocephalus and pathogenetic implications

Florian B. Freimann, K. J. Streitberger, E. Wiener, I. Sack & Christian Sprung
Objective: While several theories are discussed, our knowledge about the pathogenesis of Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus (NPH) remains inchoate. Magnetic Resonance Elastography (MRE) allows the study of in vivo alterations of viscoelastic properties of brain tissue to explore new aspects of NPH pathophysiology.[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
