Abstract

The aim of the study is to evaluate the efficiency of turbo spin-echo (TSE), three-dimensional constructive interference in the steady state (3D CISS) and cine phase contrast (Cine PC) sequences in determining flow through the endoscopic third ventriculostomy (ETV) fenestration, and to determine the effect of various TSE sequence parameters.
