We limited our review to patients with clinically diagnosed SIH by neurologists with expertise in SIH, excluding patients with any history of antecedent trauma or spine interventions deemed by the referring clinician to be related to the onset of intracranial hypotension. If a patient had more than one CTM performed during the date range, only the most recent study was included.
A list was obtained from our clinical colleagues and a search of the radiology report database was performed for "intracranial hypotension." This produced a group of patients with both clinical and MRI findings of IH.
