PurposeVisualization of the abducens nerve in its petroclival segment still remains challenging. We aimed to investigate the detectability of the petroclival segment of the abducens nerve and to evaluate the role of the size of the petroclival venous confluence (PVC) in the visibility of the nerve using contrast-enhanced fast imaging employing steady-state acquisition (FIESTA) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).MethodsWe retrospectively evaluated the contrast-enhanced FIESTA images of 237… CONTINUE READING
