Abstract

Computer-generated three-dimensional reconstruction of the intracranial vascular system obtained by contrast-enhanced computerized tomography (CT) has been used in the diagnosis of 20 patients with known or suspected intracranial cerebrovascular disease. This technique allows visualization of the intracranial vasculature without exposing patients to the risks associated with intra-arterial angiography. The color prints and videotape images generated have been used to diagnose the presence of intracranial aneurysms, arteriovenous malformations, and venous angiomas. They have also been used to rule out structural abnormalities in patients with suspected intracranial vascular pathology and to screen patients with a strong family history of intracranial aneurysm. In 11 patients who underwent both three- dimensional CT angiography and intra-arterial angiography, the diagnostic correlation was 100%. No complications from the procedures or from incorrect diagnosis have been encountered. Although this technique requires further development and clinical evaluation, the authors' early experience with three-dimensional CT angiography suggests that this may become a valuable tool in the diagnosis of patients with cerebrovascular disease.
