Time-of-flight magnetic resonance angiography is a non-invasive alternative to digital subtraction angiography (DSA) for follow up of coiled intracranial aneurysms. Standard cranial MRA protocols are a compromise between spatial resolution and imaging time. This study compares a standard resolution MRA protocol with a protocol at higher spatial resolution MRA (HR-MRA) in 21 follow-up occasions in 17 coiled aneurysms in 15 patients. Images were reviewed for presence of residual or recurrent… CONTINUE READING
