  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

Development of computerized tomography (CT) has greatly improved the ease and accuracy of identification of fluidcontaining intracranial cavities. CT reveals the size, location of the cyst, associated brain disorders and relationship between the cyst and the subarachnoid space or the ventricular system. An accurate diagnosis by plain CT is sometimes difficult to obtain. It is important to determine whether the cysts communicate with the ventricular system or subarachnoid space for the selection of the surgical treatment.
