To obtain information on affected vessels in moyamoya disease (MMD), we analyzed the vascular morphological characteristics of MMD using three-dimensional (3D) constructive interference in steady-state (CISS) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The population of this 3D-CISS MRI study consisted of 51 patients with MMD: 16 patients with atherosclerotic middle cerebral artery (MCA) stenosis or occlusion, 42 MRI control patients, and 28 control digital subtraction angiography (DSA) patients. We… CONTINUE READING
