Idiopathic Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus: The Role of MRI
Weekday Course

ORGANIZERS: Elna-Marie Larsson, Pia Maly Sundgren

Monday, 13 May 2019
  13:45 - 15:45 Moderators:  Elna-Marie Larsson, Karin Markenroth Bloch

Skill Level: Intermediate to Advanced

Session Number: M-06

This session will focus on how MRI, including physiological methods, can contribute to the understanding, diagnosis, and treatment follow-up of idiopathic normal pressure hydrocephalus (iNPH).

Target Audience
Trainees, radiologists, physicists, and basic scientists.

Educational Objectives
As a result of attending this course, participants should be able to:
- Identify the MRI criteria supporting the diagnosis of iNPH 2;
- Recognise the CSF flow abnormalities in iNPH and how they can be investigated by MRI 3;
- Describe the role of aqueductal and glymphatic CSF dynamics in iNPH 4; and
- Discuss the role of MRI for patient selection for shunt surgery and for treatment follow-up in iNPH.
