The cardiac related intracranial pulsations are the main influence on the spinal CSF movement. There is agreement about the additional influence of respiration which has not been imaged so far. The dynamic echo planar sequence (EPI) presented here delineates the influence of pulse and respiration on the spinal CSf pulsation. The physiological variation of the pulsation from the upper cervical to the lumbar region can be delineated. The influence of respiration is present on any spinal level with a maximum in the upper cervical and thoracolumbar region. We could not confirm a pronounced respiratory influence below an absolute stenosis.
