Air encephalogram or pneumoencephalography refers to the radiographic visualization of the fluid-containing structures of the brain, the ventricles, and spinal column. It is similar to the X-ray, but it involves the withdrawal of cerebrospinal fluid by lumbar puncture, which is then replaced with a gas including air, oxygen, or helium.
