The purpose of this study was to compare the digital subtraction angiography (DSA) with the magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) in the evaluation of intracranial aneurysms embolized with Guglielmi Detachable Coils (GDC) and to assess the 3D TOF MRA source data, maximum intensity projection (MIP) and the 3D isosurface reconstruction. Material/Methods: MRA and DSA were performed in 28 patients with 32 aneurysms treated by GDC (12 men – 43% and 16 women – 57%, age range 38–62) as a part of a routine protocol. Images were assessed for parent and branch artery flow, the presence of neck and suck recurrence and aneurysm regrowth. Conclusions:

There was a relatively strong correlation for all these features when 3D ...
