On CT, one sees dilatation of the lateral ventricles and normal or compressed sulci. Hydrocephalus ex vacuo does not arise from a problem of CSF production, flow, or absorption; rather, it arises from volume loss. While resembling the structure of other types of hydrocephalus on imaging, hydrocephalus ex vacuo is characterized by enlarged ventricles and widened sulci resulting from atrophy of brain tissue (Figure 1–22). In severe cases of cerebral pathology, herniation of brain tissue may occur.
Although CT is not the most sensitive imaging modality for identifying such underlying changes, certain psychiatric and neuropsychiatric presentations may be associated with lesions detectable on CT. Table 1–7 catalogs findings that may be visible on CT. Clinical Indications for Neuroimaging Figure 1–23. Subfalcine herniation. Right-to-left shift under falx cerebri is due to hemorrhagic process. Neuroimaging is indicated in a variety of clinical settings, ranging from emergencies to nonacute screening situations.
Tissues with more heterogeneous composition possess greater variations in local magnetic fields. Larger variations in these local magnetic fields cause larger differences in precession frequencies; protons consequently dephase faster, and T2 is shorter (Lufkin 1998; Schild 1999). Because of these influences, protons have different relaxation rates and corresponding T1 and T2 time con- ESSENTIALS OF NEUROIMAGING FOR CLINICAL PRACTICE 26 Figure 2–7. Source.
