The feasibility of the 3D dynamic improved motion-sensitized driven-equilibrium steady-state free precession (3D dynamic iMSDE SSFP) was evaluated for visualizing CSF motion and the appropriate parameters were determined. Both flow phantom and volunteer studies revealed that linear ordering and the shortest acquisition duration time were optimal. 3D dynamic iMSDE SSFP provides good quality imaging of CSF motion in the whole brain and enables visualization of flow in arbitrary planes from a single 3D volume scan.
