To evaluate efficacy of three-dimensional (3D) heavily T2-weighted (W) MRI sequences in assessment of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) pathways and to compare two different types of 3D heavily T2W MRI sequences (CISS and SPACE) with two-dimensional (2D) T2W turbo spin echo (TSE) sequences for hydrocephalus with intraventricular obstruction.
