BACKGROUND/PURPOSE This study was performed to evaluate the role of non-contrast 3D time-of-flight (TOF) magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) to detect and quantify intracranial steno-occlusive disease. METHODS Between April 2004 and January 2006, 45 patients with both 1.5T TOF MRA and digital subtraction angiography (DSA) performed within a 30-day interval were included. We evaluated the following intracranial arterial segments: petrous internal carotid artery (ICA), cavernous ICA… CONTINUE READING
