Enhanced 3d Ct Reconstruction

This color enhanced frontal 3D CT reconstruction of the skull beautifully demonstrates the normal appearance of a ventricular shunt catheter exiting the skull through a frontal burr hole. Over the surface of the skull you see the shunt catheter reservoir (purple) and the shunt tubing (green) extending inferiorly within the soft tissues of the scalp. These often terminate in the peritoneal cavity of the abdomen or the pleural space of the chest. There are no breaks or discontinuities of the catheter which one would look for with shunt malfunction.
