Abstract

This study investigates the three-dimensional pulsatile velocity field within the spinal cavity using computation fluid dynamics. Geometry of the spinal canal was obtained non-invasively in a healthy volunteer using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The flow waveform of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) was obtained using phase contrast magnetic resonance (PCMR). Numerical simulation of this unsteady flow revealed blunt velocity profiles indicating a relatively inertial dominated flow.
