Abstract

Purpose Despite a considerable amount of literature that has been published about the use of intrathecal gadolinium-enhanced MR cisternography (IGE-MRC), there is still relatively lack of evidence as to its long-term effects. Our purpose in this study was twofold: firstly, to assess the long-term safety of the IGE-MRC; secondly, to evaluate the diagnostic performance of IGE-MRC for detecting cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leak in otorhinorrhea patients.
