Human brain perivascular spaces trending idea

Caption :

3D rendered image of segmented Perivascular Spaces (PVSs), superimposed on a high-resolution 7 Tesla anatomical MRI of a healthy adult brain. PVSs, also known as Virchow-Robin spaces, are fluid-filled structures that accompany vessels entering (penetrating arteries) or leaving (draining veins) the cerebral cortex. Mapping PVSs has significant clinical value because it plays a key role in the circulation of the cerebrospinal fluid and also clearance of metabolic waste out of the brain.
