PURPOSE To evaluate the role of 4 different reformation techniques and axial images from multidetector computed tomographic angiography (MDCTA) versus selective carotid arteriography (SCA) in patients with internal carotid artery (ICA) stenosis. METHODS Imaging studies from 50 patients (43 men; mean age 70.3+/-8.0 years, range 51-85) with known cerebrovascular disease who underwent MDCTA and SCA in a single university hospital were retrospectively analyzed. Axial images, multiplanar… CONTINUE READING
