IntroductionThis study aimed to evaluate the visibility of stents using high-resolution computed tomography (CT) acquisitions acquired with flat panel detector (XperCT, Allura series, Philips Healthcare, The Netherlands) for endovascular treatment of intracranial aneurysms.MethodsOn a 24-month period, 48 patients endovascularly treated by coiling and stenting (59 stents) for intracranial aneurysms were explored by flat panel detector CT technique. A sequence of 620 2D images was acquired over… 
Clinical Impact of Flat Panel Volume CT Angiography in Evaluating the Accurate Intraoperative Deployment of Flow-Diverter Stents
TLDR
Flat panel volume CT angiography is an interesting tool to depict flow-diverter stent misdeployment and may encourage the operator to perform intrastent angioplasty to reduce the risks of thromboembolic complications.
Impact of a new metal artefact reduction algorithm in the noninvasive follow-up of intracranial clips, coils, and stents with flat-panel angiographic CTA: initial results
TLDR
Use of the MARA in this study significantly reduced artefacts around metallic implants on ivACT images and allowed for the delineation of surrounding structures.
Application of a novel metal artifact correction algorithm in flat-panel CT after coil embolization of brain aneurysms: intraindividual comparison.
TLDR
Adding metal artifact correction to FP-CT in an acute postinterventional setting helps to visualize the close vicinity of the aneurysm at a generally consistent image quality.
Artifact Reduction of Different Metallic Implants in Flat Detector C-Arm CT
TLDR
The metal artifact reduction algorithm substantially reduced artifacts and improved the objective image quality in every studied case and allowed improved diagnostic confidence in most cases.
Metal artifact reduction algorithm for image quality improvement of cone-beam CT images of medium or large cerebral aneurysms treated with stent-assisted coil embolization
TLDR
The feasibility of a metal artifact reduction (MAR) algorithm to improve the image quality of CBCT images in patients who have undergone SAC for medium or large aneurysms is suggested.
Long-term visual outcome in patients treated by flow diversion for carotid-ophthalmic aneurysms
TLDR
Patients treated by FDS for COA have a good long-term clinical ophthalmic outcome, however, extensive ophthalmologists should be aware of these possible complications when choosing to treat these aneurysms with FDS.
Visual Outcomes with Flow-Diverter Stents Covering the Ophthalmic Artery for Treatment of Internal Carotid Artery Aneurysms
TLDR
Ophthalmic complications can occur but are often not diagnosed, so covering the ophthalmic artery with a flow-diverting stent is not without potential complications and should be avoided when possible.
New Method for Evaluating the Visibility of Coronary Stents
In invasive radiology, X-ray imaging is used in both tracking the delivery system and assisting in correct positioning of stents. Until now there has been no objective and quantitative scale of X-ray

Angiographic CT with intravenous administration of contrast medium is a noninvasive option for follow-up after intracranial stenting
TLDR
This new application has the potential to become the imaging method of choice after ICAS since it not only enables visualization of the patency of the stent lumen but also is minimally invasive and provides additional information about all brain arteries and the brain parenchyma.
Stent conformity in curved vascular models with simulated aneurysm necks using flat-panel CT: an in vitro study.
TLDR
Flat-Panel CT is superior to DSA and DR in visualizing small metallic stents and enables accurate detection of adverse stent mechanics and was superior to digital subtraction angiography (DSA) and digital radiography (DR).
Small-vessel stents for intracranial angioplasty: in vitro comparison of different stent designs and sizes by using CT angiography.
TLDR
CT angiographic evaluation of small-vessel patency after stent placement is considerably impaired by ALN, and stent manufacturers should be aware of potential artifacts caused by their stents during noninvasive diagnostic studies such as CT angiography.
Angiographic CT in cerebrovascular stenting.
TLDR
ACT allowed for the clear visualization of stents in both intracranial and extracranial arteries and was superior to conventional digital subtraction angiography and digital radiography in visualizing both the stent struts and their relationships to the arterial walls and aneurysmal lumen.
Stent-Assisted Coiling of Intracranial Aneurysms: Clinical and Angiographic Results in 216 Consecutive Aneurysms
TLDR
Stent-assisted coiling was associated with a significant decrease of angiographic recurrences, but they were associated with more lethal complications compared with coiling without stents.
Wall Shear Stress in Intracranial Self-Expanding Stents Studied Using Ultra-High-Resolution 3D Reconstructions
TLDR
The feasibility of ultra-high-resolution MicroCT imaging in elucidating important details of intracranial stent deployment as a basis for accurate CHD simulations and in enabling a structural and hemodynamic study of realistically deployed stents with different geometry and design is demonstrated.
Neuroform stent-assisted coiling of intracranial aneurysms: a 5 year single-center experience and follow-up
TLDR
In treating complex intracranial aneurysms, the Neuroform stent-assisted coiling is a secure and effective technique.
NEUROFORM STENT‐ASSISTED COIL EMBOLIZATION OF WIDE‐NECK INTRACRANIAL ANEURYSMS: STRATEGIES IN STENT DEPLOYMENT AND MIDTERM FOLLOW‐UP
TLDR
Results indicate that Neuroform stent-assisted coil embolization is a safe and effective technique in the treatment of wide-necked cerebral aneurysms and further studies are needed to evaluate the long-term durability of stenting-assisted aneurYSm occlusion and tolerance to the stent.
Endovascular Reconstruction with the Neuroform Stent as Monotherapy for the Treatment of Uncoilable Intradural Pseudoaneurysms
TLDR
Endovascular Neuroform stent reconstruction represents an optimal strategy for the management of intradural pseudoaneurysms that require a constructive treatment strategy and are too small to accommodate the introduction of embolization coils.
Usefulness of the Neuroform Stent for the Treatment of Cerebral Aneurysms: Results at Initial (3–6-mo) Follow-up
TLDR
The Neuroform stent facilitates adequate embolization of complex cerebral aneurysms, which would not otherwise be amenable to endovascular therapy.
