Virchow–Robin spaces (VRS) in coronal and sagittal images in brain of a control subject. a, b Coronal plane multi-planar reconstruction constructive interference in the steady state (CISS) images. c, d Sagittal plane multi-planar reconstruction CISS images. VRS in the white matter were divided into medial and lateral groups on coronal sections (a, b). The medial VRS extended down to the superolateral angle of the lateral ventricle (small arrow), while the lateral VRS ran medially and stopped at the lateral end of the corona radiata (CR). In the basal ganglia, VRS extended upward and some of them (large arrow) appeared to communicate with the floor of the ventricle. Fluid spaces were also noted just above the corpus callosum.
