Automated segmentation of MR imaging to determine normative central nervous system cerebrospinal fluid volumes in healthy volunteers.


An accurate non-invasive method to determine total body cerebrospinal fluid volume has a number of potential diagnostic and therapeutic applications. Herein we describe a technique for automated segmentation of total body MRI data to determine cranial and spinal CSF volume in 15 healthy adults. These in vivo estimates of CSF volume exceed the standard… (More)
