Aims of this morphometric study was to analyze the size of third ventricle in relation to the dimension of diencephelon in humans. Ventricular size of males and females was compared. Changes in normal ventricular size with the corresponding changes in the dimension of diencephelon during ageing was also studied and statistically analyzed. The CT images of 112 adult individuals (Age Group 21–60) and 88 ageing individuals (Age above 61) was studied in both males and females. This study suggests…

Morphometric Study of the Third Ventricles in Apparantly Normal Subjects Using Computerized Tomography.

The present study shows that TVW increases only mildly and TSFI decreases with age, and TVR does not depend upon age.

A Morphometric Study of Ventricular System of Human Brain by Computerised Tomography in an Indian Population and its Clinical Significance

The present study has defined the morphometric measurements of the lateral ventricles, third ventricle, and fourth ventricularle of the brain which has clinical correlations in diagnosis and for appropriate treatment.

Morphometric Analysis of the Brain Ventricles in Normal Subjects Using Computerized Tomography

The morphometric measurements of the lateral ventricles, third ventricularle, and fourth ventricle of the brain which has clinical correlations in diagnosis and for further line of treatment are defined.

Age-related Changes in Ventricular System of Brain in Normal Individuals Assessed by Computed Tomography Scans

Sizes of all three ventricles were more in elderly individuals, and in both higher age-groups, males had more expansion of ventricular system than females, and increase in ventricular size was more evident in the lateral ventricle.

Gender Related Differences in Third Ventricle Parameters with Correlation to Cerebrum Size - A Study on Head CT Scans.

Measurements of third ventricle at all the three levels provides comprehensive data especially in elderly which might help in distinguishing third ventricular enlargement in hydrocephalus and brain atrophy diseases.



Computed tomographic analysis of brain morphometrics in 30 healthy men, aged 21 to 81 years

It is demonstrated that brain atrophy, evidenced by a loss of grey matter and by dilatation of cerebrospinal fluid spaces, occurs in the healthy elderly, and baseline CT‐derived brain morphometric data for healthy men in relation to age is provided.

Changes in size of normal lateral ventricles during aging determined by computerized tomography

The range of normal ventricular size was relatively more wide in the eighth and ninth decades than in the first seven; thus, abnormalities of ventricularSize may be more easily identified in younger than older subjects.

Reevaluation of the size of the lateral ventricles of the brain

This study had 2 major purposes: to correlate ventricular size at death with age, clinical categories, and terminal events and to ascertain the incidence of clinically diagnosed and undiagnosed hydrocephalus in adults.

Brain and intracranial cavity volumes: in vivo determination by MRI

A non‐invasive technique using MRI which permits the in vivo determination of brain volume, intracranial cavity volume, ventricular, cortical sulcal and total intrac Cranial CSF volumes will make it possible, for the first time, to investigate prospectively the correlation between mental function and brain volume in illness and ageing.

An empirical model for analysing and interpreting ventricular measures.

The analysis of the clinical groups suggested that differential patterns of ventricular change were present dependent upon the disease, and each dimension contributed unique information regarding these age-related changes.

Computed tomography findings in senile dementia and normal aging.

Computed tomography findings in 57 patients with senile dementia of Alzheimer type (SDAT), 19 patients with multi-infarct dementia and 85 controls of similar age and sex were studied, finding the least severely demented SDAT patients differed from the controls in ventricular dilatation, frontal horn index, cella media index and the width of the third ventricle.

Quantitative cerebral anatomy of the aging human brain

Many elderly subjects did not exhibit cortical atrophy or lateral ventricular enlargement, however, indicating that such changes are not inevitable consequences of advancing age, and these data should provide a useful clinical context within which to interpret changes in regional brain size associated with “abnormal” aging.

Sex differences in brain aging: a quantitative magnetic resonance imaging study.

The results are generally consistent with the few published studies on sex differences in brain aging and suggest that, for at least some structures, aging effects may be more apparent in men than women.

Imaging of the aging brain. Part I. Normal findings.

Since approximately half of the elderly population exhibits only negligible brain alterations, MR imaging may facilitate the distinction between usual (no neurologic dysfunction) and successful (no brain or vascular changes) aging.

Computerized tomography (the EMI Scanner): a comparison with pneumoencephalography and ventriculography.

Computerized tomography, using the EMI Scanner, allows the diagnosis of cerebral atrophy or hydrocephalus to be made with the same degree of accuracy as conventional neuroradiological methods.
