Test Description

The Computed Tomography (CT) Cisternography is an imaging procedure where rotating beams of X-rays are used to create a detailed image of the head and brain before and after injection of a contrast material to check for the presence and location of the leakage of cerebrospinal fluid.

Why Get Tested

  1. To confirm the CSF (cerebrospinal fluid) leakag;
  2. To determine the position of the leak;
  3. To guide any treatment procedure;
  4. To diagnose CSF Rhinorrhoea, where the CSF leaks into the sinuses surrounding the nasal region;
  5. To diagnose CSF Otorrhoea, where the CSF leaks into the middle or inner ear cavities

Precautions

  • 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.
  • Depending on the area to be imaged, you may be asked to wear a hospital gown at the time of the X-ray.
