High-contrast computed tomographic angiography better detects residual intracranial arteriovenous malformations in long-term follow-up after radiotherapy than 1.5-Tesla time-of-flight magnetic resonance angiography.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Computed tomography angiography (CTA) and magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) are noninvasive alternatives for therapy monitoring of cerebral arteriovenous malformation (AVM). PURPOSE To evaluate if CTA is able to detect residual AVM in the long-term follow-up after radiotherapy when time-of-flight (TOF) MRA could no longer detect a remaining… (More)
