Abstract

CT angiography, which has important advantages over both MR and ultrasound, is rapidly becoming an important modality for noninvasive evaluation of the neurovasculature. This article discusses CT angiography techniques for imaging the neurovasculature, including spiral acquisition protocols and image processing techniques, with a focus on the use of volume rendering for three-dimensional visualization. The clinical results for CT angiography of the cervical carotid arteries, intracranial aneurysms, arteriovenous malformations, and emerging work in the evaluation of acute stroke are reviewed. Important areas of ongoing research also are described.
