From measurements of the oscillating flux of the cerebro-spinal fluid (CSF) in the aqueduct of Sylvius we elaborate a patient-based methodology for TRansmantle Pressure (TRP) and shear evaluation. High-resolution anatomical MRI first permits a precise three-dimensional anatomical digitalized reconstruction of the Sylviuss aqueduct shape. From this, a very fast approximate numerical flow computation, nevertheless consistent with analytical predictions, is developed. Our approach includes the main contributions of inertial effects coming from the pulsatile flow and curvature effects associated with the aqueduct bending. Integrating the pressure along the aqueduct longitudinal centerline enables the total dynamic hydraulic admittances of the aqueduct to be evaluated, which is the pre-eminent contribution to the CSF pressure difference between the lateral ventricles (LV) and the subarachnoidal spaces (SAS) also called the transmantle pressure. The application of the method to twenty healthy human patients validates the hypothesis of the proposed approach and provides a first database for normal aqueduct CSF flow. Finally, the implications of our results for modeling and evaluating Intra-cranial Cerebral Pressure (ICP) is discussed.
