Because the volume of the calvarium is fixed, and solid brain tissue is essentially incompressible, as the ventricles expand, other CSF spaces become compressed—consequently, the sulci become effaced. In contrast, in the patient with atrophy, the ventricles may appear dilated but sulci appear similarly enlarged. In communicating hydrocephalus, the axial CT at the level of the lateral ventricles and third ventricle can resemble the face of a Halloween pumpkin. The enlarged anterior horns of the lateral ventricles are the rounded eyes, and the normally slitlike midline third ventricle dilates to a rounded nose.
