  • OBJECTIVES The symptom and neuroimaging as indications for treating arachnoid cysts (ACs) are not adequate. Understanding the communication between cyst and subarachnoid space is helpful for decision-making. We took a dynamic study of ACs using CT cisternography (CTC) and proposed a classification of arachnoid cysts. MATERIALS AND METHODS Total 52 symptomatic patients with ACs were enrolled in this prospective study. CTC images were ordered, in all enrolled patients, at the 1, 3, 6, 12, 24… CONTINUE READING
