Objective: We adapted time-resolved 3D MR velocity mapping for investigation of flow patterns of CSF in the human ventricular system for the first time. Our aim was to use MR velocity mapping in combination with calculation of particle path lines from velocity vector field data to introduce a method[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
