New Spinal CSF Leak Imaging Factsheet


Imaging Quick Reference Factsheet FB Advert 1

Quick Reference Guide to Spinal CSF Leak Imaging Techniques

We we delighted to have been able to release our brand new factsheet on imaging techniques to coincide with both Day Three of Leak Week UK and global Rare Disease Day 2018.

The guidance provides a brief overview to most of the common imaging techniques that diagnosed or suspected spinal CSF leak sufferers will encounter on their diagnostic and treatment journeys.

It was prepared with significant professional input and should answer many of the common questions that patients have about the different scans that they’re put forward for.

The Value of Changing Position in the Detection of CSF Leakage


ABSTRACT: Radionuclide Cisternography (RNC) is of potential value in pointing out the sites of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leakage in patients with spontaneous intracranial hypotension (SIH). In the current report, we present two patients who underwent RNC for suspected CSF leakage. Both patients underwent magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and RNC for evaluation. We describe a simple method to increase the detection ability of RNC for CSF leakage in patients with SIH.
