DOPE — A Fast Method to Measure CSF Motion
The physiology of CSF circulation is not yet fully understood. Various invasive methods and recently some noninvasive MR methods have been used to study bulk motion and local CSF pulsations. DOPE (double phase encoding) is a new MR method (Hennig 1988) that allows one to measure quantitatively the CSF flow over a wide region within seconds during routine examinations. The flow patterns in normal volunteers and in patients with suspected disturbed CSF circulation will be discussed.
