A first look at interstitial fluid flow in the brain

(American Institute of Physics) Past research has shown a link between interstitial fluid flow and an increased invasion rate of glioblastoma cells, and biomedical researchers and electrical engineers recently developed a new method to measure and reconstruct interstitial fluid flow velocities in the brain. This method gives a first look at interstitial fluid flow dynamics in glioma models, and the technique can readily translate to clinical models already using contrast-enhanced MRI. The team describes their method in APL Bioengineering.
