Intracranial Vessel Wall MRI: Principles and Expert Consensus Recommendations of the American Society of Neuroradiology

Key points: Conventional techniques for imaging the intracranial arteries can fail to fully characterize disease that resides within the vessel wall. For this reason, there is growing interest in direct visualization of the vessel wall with high-resolution intracranial vessel wall MR imaging (VW-MR imaging). The principal technical requirements for intracranial VW-MR imaging are the following: Clinical Read more about Intracranial Vessel Wall MRI: Principles and Expert Consensus Recommendations of the American Society of Neuroradiology[…]

A pilot study and novel angiographic classification for superior sagittal sinus stenting in patients with non-thrombotic intracranial venous occlusive disease

Raper DM, Buell TJ, Ding D, Pomeraniec IJ, Crowley RW, Liu KC. Key points: The majority of stenosis of an intracranial dural sinus, cause of intracranial hypertension (IIH) or chronic headache without IIH, involve the transverse (TS) and sigmoid (SS) sinuses. However, a subset of patients with intracranial venous occlusive disease (VOD) has SSS stenosis with Read more about A pilot study and novel angiographic classification for superior sagittal sinus stenting in patients with non-thrombotic intracranial venous occlusive disease[…]
