Abnormal flow of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) may lead to a hydrocephalus condition as a result of birth defects, accident or infection. In this paper we use raw MRI data to work out the "tissue classification segmentation" image and then import this realistic brain geometry into a finite element software so as to simulate CSF velocity and pressure distributions throughout the brain tissue in hydrocephalus. Such procedure is summarized using a 2D case-study.
