Csf Flow Study

This test is for
Male, Female
Test Preparation
  1. Pregnant women should inform their doctor (and x-ray technician) as the radiations may affect the fetus. If needed, precautions can be taken to lower the radiation exposure to the fetus.
  2. Depending on the area to be imaged, you may be asked to wear a hospital gown at the time of the scan.


What is Csf Flow Study?

The pulsatile flow of the Cerebrospinal Fluid or CSF is studied using Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) technique creating a detailed image of the flow pattern which can be used to visualize the flow as well as quantify the rate of flow to detect any anomalies. These images can help in the diagnosis of a condition as well as monitor the efficacy of treatment.

Why is Csf Flow Study done?

  1. • To understand and guide the treatment of conditions like aqueduct stenosis and normal pressure hydrocephalus • To understand congenital disorders (birth defects) in the structure of the nervous system • To estimate the efficacy of various treatment procedures



Mahajan Imaging has a history of bringing new technologies into the private sector in the country for example standing weight bearing MRI, Cone Beam Dental CT, functional MRI, MR tractography, MR mammography, CT coronary angiography, 4D ultrasound with tomography, PET-CT, CT-guided robotic biopsy, digital mammography and DEXA bone densitometry. Continuing the said trend, they have recently installed Asia’s 1st Silent MRI technology and India’s first Dual Energy Spectral CT Scanner with the most...
