PURPOSE To assess the diagnostic accuracy of three-dimensional (3D) magnetic resonance (MR) images in the preoperative evaluation of hemifacial spasm. MATERIALS AND METHODS In 27 patients with surgically confirmed hemifacial spasm, the axial source images from 3D time-of-flight MR angiography were evaluated for 27 symptomatic sides and 26 asymptomatic sides by three observers in a blinded manner for neurovascular compression and identification of compressive vessels. RESULTS Sensitivity was… CONTINUE READING
