Noninvasive imaging of treated cerebral aneurysms, part I: MR angiographic follow-up of coiled aneurysms

AJNR Am J Neuroradiol. Jun-Jul 2007;28(6):1001-8. doi: 10.3174/ajnr.A0662.

Abstract

MRA is emerging as an alternative to conventional catheter based angiography for the assessment of aneurysms after endovascular treatment. Short TE and contrast enhanced MRA techniques can be applied to optimize image quality. We review the available data regarding the application of MR for the assessment of cerebral aneurysms after endovascular therapy.
