Differences between chelates and albumin clearances from the spinal fluid were evaluated by determination of both tracers in blood, and urinary excretion of radiochelates after simultaneous injection in 6 patients with CSF turnover. A quicker blood absorption of the 111In DTPA from the subarachnoid space was found. 111In DTPA was useful in the study of spinal fluid pathology up to the basal cisterns, while 131I-HSA was thought preferable for the study of the cisternal space above the tentorial level. A reevaluation was performed of the cisternographic records of a series of 200 adult patients and 71 children with a wide variety of clinical disorders from 1972 to 1975: 75% of the patients were studied with 131I-HSA and 25% were studied with 111In DTPA.
