Neuro Ventricular System CSF Flow Sequence Mnemonic!

The order of CSF flow can be difficult to remember, so hope this mnemonic helps.
"Lady Monro has 3 Aqueducts that goes to 4 Luscious and Magical Subarachnoid places."
Lateral Ventricles
Foramina of Monro
3rd ventricle
Cerebral Aqueduct of Sylvius
4th ventricle
Foramina of Luschka & Foramen of Magendie
Subarachnoid Space
From here the CSF goes to the arachnoid granulations and into the superior saggital sinus (filled with venous blood)
