Artefacts of adjustable shunt valves in MRI – analysis of valve models, MRI- techniques and clinical consequences

Timo Behm, Claudia Kuhlbars, Veit Rohde & Florian Stockhammer
Objective: Adjustability of hydrocephalus valves is performed by percutaneous magnetic interaction. Whereas changes of the valve setting during MR scans is solved in modern valves, the MR image is still vulnerable for susceptibility artefacts with increased magnetic field strength. Therefore, we set[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
