Background The cerebral aqueduct is a central conduit for cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), and non-invasive quantification of CSF flow in the aqueduct may be an important tool for diagnosis and follow-up of treatment. Magnetic resonance (MR) methods at clinical field strengths are limited by low spatial resolution. Purpose To investigate the feasibility of high-resolution through-plane MR flow measurements (2D-PC) in the cerebral aqueduct at high field strength (7T). Read More
