We describe a novel MRI sequence (T2 SPACE) capable of demonstrating detailed structural anatomy and functional CSF flow information simultaneously. While traditionally, a variety of sequences are utilised for this purpose, we have highlighted the advantages of this technique over traditional approaches, using example of a patient with CSF loculation in prepontine/suprasellar cistern, causing third ventricular compression and hydrocephalus. The sequence depicted the surgical anatomy by showing the web/cyst wall as well as CSF flow entering the cyst potentially causing increased pressure.
