Visualization of CSF and tissue volume enlargements across ISO and DEXM-I rats. ac 3D volume rendered statistical parametric maps (color-coded for p-values) are overlaid onto 3D volume rendered CSF binary map (black) to illustrate the CSF volume enlargements in DEXM-I in comparison to ISO. a Ventral view showing the basal cistern and peri-arterial conduits along the circle of Willis. b Side view illustrating the CSF volume enlargement at the level of the basal and ambient cisterns. c Caudal view to show the CSF enlargement related to the ambient cistern. d–f 3D volume rendered statistical parametric maps (color-coded for p-values) shown in three orthogonal view overlaid onto 3D volume rendered CSF map (black). The statistically significant areas of tissue expansion are shown to be scattered across the cortex. Few of the enlarged focal areas are located in proximity to CSF spaces including the aqueduct and ambient cistern
