Evaluation of cerebrospinal fluid flow through a Pudenz 12 mm or a standard Rickham reservoir: phantom experiments.

Abstract

We have investigated the assessment of fluid flow through a Pudenz and a Rickham shunt using radioactive tracer. Experimentally, the radioactivity clearance curve obtained, using either shunt, is defined by two exponents. The relationship between flow-rate (F) and clearance half-time (T1/2) of the first component is identical with the clearance formula… (More)
