POSITIVE CONTRAST VENTRICULOGRAPHY, CISTERNOGRAPHY AND MYELOGRAPHY

Abstract

Positive contrast roentgenologic studies are useful in neuroradiology chiefly when done in conjunction with image intensification and with cineroentgenography. In our

service the contrast material used is pantopaque.
This technique is employed for ventriculography, cisternography and myelography.
The ventriculography is mainly indicated for the study of midline lesions.
The cisternography is very helpful in the early diagnosis of acoustic neurinomas and other tumors of the posterior fossa.
The cine myelography is particularly superior to the routine technique in the thoracic region.
Illustrative cases are presented.*
