On the Horizon for Syringomyelia in Children

This page was last updated on May 9th, 2017

  • Imaging and computational fluid dynamics: Future advances in syringomyelia are likely to result from research in imaging and computational fluid dynamics (CFD), which derives its model from anatomical and flow data obtained from phase-contrast MRI. This type of analysis of the fluid dynamics that result in syrinx development involves hydrodynamic modeling of the anatomical region of interest (e.g., foramen magnum and syrinx cavity), and the prediction of physical interactions between its components. Future evolution of imaging and CFD techniques is likely to result in a more advanced understanding of CSF dynamics and pathologies including syringomyelia (73, 74).
