Measurement of Cerebrospinal Fluid Flow Dynamics Using Phase Contrast MR Imaging with Bilateral Jugular Vein Compression: A Feasibility Study in Healthy Volunteers.

Abstract

We measured the changes in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) flow dynamics after compression of the bilateral jugular veins using phase contrast-magnetic resonance imaging (PC-MRI). PC-MRI was performed in 10 healthy male volunteers using a 3T clinical scanner with a two-dimensional gradient echo sequence. We successfully measured the changes in CSF flow velocity using PC-MRI with and without compression of the bilateral jugular veins. The relative velocity range decreased by about 30% when the bilateral jugular veins were compressed.
