On the basis of own experience with 250 MR-angiographies and with reference to the literature the authors report on the role MR-angiography is assuming in neuroradiological diagnostic procedures. As a noninvasive method MR-angiography contributes to the evaluation of vessel stenosis and occlusion, venous sinus thrombosis and neurovascular compression syndromes. It supports the work-up of space-occupying lesions, as well as arteriovenous malformations and aneurysms. In addition to the diagnosis, follow-up examinations serve as a noninvasive means of therapy control particularly after interventional endovascular procedures. Knowledge of the diagnostic capabilities and limitations, the choice of the correct examination technique and modification of technical variables contribute to establish MR-angiography as a valuable adjunct to MR imaging.
