3D SPACE sequence in hydrocephalus patients are very sensitive in differentiating obstructive from communicating hydrocephalus, thereby selecting more patients as candidates for endoscopic procedures and reducing the need and complications of shunt procedures. SWI sequence detected hemorrhage at multiple sites and helps to unveil the cause of hydrocephalus in many patients. We recommend to include these sequences in the set of routine MRI sequences in cases of hydrocephalus and to follow the newer classification of hydrocephalus as the tool for selection of surgical options.
