Computed tomography number correlations for metrizamide computed tomographic ventriculography



Computed tomography number correlations for metrizamide computed tomographic ventriculography



Surgical Neurology 27(2): 126-130



The authors describe a method that permits the determination of the precise intraventricular iodine concentration after metrizamide computed tomographic ventriculography. There is an observed linear relationship between computed tomography number (Hounsfield units) and iodine concentration. This relationship may be used to provide the basis for a method of evaluating ventricular fluid dynamics. This, in turn, is useful for the determination of the indications for a shunting procedure and for the evaluation of shunt function in a patient with an existing shunt.
