PURPOSE To determine whether interpretation of internal carotid artery (ICA) stenosis from source partitions is more accurate than interpretation from maximum-intensity projections (MIPs) from three-dimensional (3D) time-of-flight (TOF) magnetic resonance (MR) angiography. MATERIALS AND METHODS The percentage of diameter ICA stenosis was measured on source images and MIPs from sagittal (n = 150) and transverse (n = 140) 3D TOF MR angiography. Measurements were compared with those from… CONTINUE READING
