Severity Analysis of Neurovascular Contact in Patients with Trigeminal Neuralgia: Assessment with the Inner View of the 3D MR Cisternogram and Angiogram Fusion Imaging
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Neurovascular contact (NVC) of the trigeminal nerve is not only detected at the affected trigeminal nerve in patients with trigeminal neuralgia (TN) but is also observed atExpand
