0 Circumventricular organs (CVOs)

Circumventricular organs (CVOs) are structures in the brain that are characterized by their extensive vasculature and lack of a normal blood brain barrier (BBB).
  1. Area postrema
  2. Organum vasculosum of the lamina terminalis (OVLT)
  3. Subfornical organ (SFO)
  4. Posterior pituitary
  5. Median eminence
  6. Pineal gland

Inclusion of Choroid Plexus in CVOs is debatable , but it is also outside BBB. Thus enhance on CECT.
