  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

Three-dimensional computed tomography (3D-CT) has recently become available and is being increasingly applied in the field of neuroradiology. One of the procedures, 3D-CT angiography (3D-CTA), has been reported to be more advantageous than MR angiography in the diagnosis of cerebral aneurysms. Some investigators insist that conven-tional angiography is no longer needed to make the diagnosis.
