  • Values for densities of contrast loaded cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) in hounsfield units (HU), measured intracranial in the basal cistern (IC-SAS) and the subarachnoid space (SAS) of the optic nerve (ON) for the right (ON-SAS-R) and the left (ON-SAS-L) ON, as well as CSF pressure (p CSF) in cm H2O (<20 = less then 20 cm H2O) measured during lumbar puncture (LP), in 18 normal tension glaucoma (NTG) patients (7 females (f) and 11 male (m)) and controls (Co).
