BACKGROUND Contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance angiography (CE-MRA) is less prone to flow-related signal intensity loss than three-dimensional time-of-flight (3D TOF) MRA and may therefore be more sensitive for detection of residual patency in platinum coil-treated intracranial aneurysms. PURPOSE To compare MRA and CE-MRA in the follow-up of intracranial aneurysms treated with platinum coils. MATERIAL AND METHODS CE-MRA and 3D TOF MRA (pre- and postcontrast injection) of the intracranial… CONTINUE READING
