Abstract

A simple method of demonstrating shunt morphology with 99m technetium diethylene triamine penta-acetic acid (99m Tc-DTPA) is described. The anatomic abnormalities are illustrated. Demonstration of the site of obstruction is useful in selecting the neurosurgical approach. The procedure is minimally invasive, accurate, and simple to interpret.
