The article presents information on the complications of cerebral angiography. The importance of cerebral angiography as a diagnostic aid is constantly increasing as its usefulness is proved in a variety of clinical situations; but the safety of this procedure is often questioned. The greatest number of complications was seen in patients 40-50 years of age. In view of the ever-increasing use of angiography for diagnosis, there is need to discuss the complications experienced in current clinical work, and to seek means by which they may be prevented.

    The purpose was to evaluate the image quality of high-spatial resolution MRA of the renal arteries at 1.5 T after contrast-agent injection of 0.2 mmol/kg body weight (BW) in an interindividual comparison to 3.0 T after contrast-agent injection of 0.1 mmol/kg BW contrast agent (CA). After IRB...

    Mesenteric lipoma (ML) is a relatively rare disease that has been very infrequently reported. We present the clinical data and medical imaging results of an asymptomatic case with ML incidentally detected by sonography (US). On US the lesion was imaged as a well-demarcated hypoechoic mass with...

    Cerebral arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) are rarely associated with other vascular lesions. Our goal was to examine the incidence of the coexistence of cerebral AVMs and cerebral arterial fenestrations. During the past 18 years, 51 patients with a cerebral AVM were examined with selective...

    We examined the incidence of ischemic lesions occurring after cerebral angiography by means of diffusion weighted MR imaging (DWI). Fifty patients were included in this study. Balloon occlusion tests of the internal carotid artery were performed in 9 of the 50 patients. DWI was performed on the...
