We assessed the value of the volume-rendering method of displaying images of three-dimensional (3D) time-of-flight MR angiography (MRA) in the diagnosis of intracranial aneurysms. We obtained three-dimensional volume-rendered MRA from 21 patients with intracranial aneurysms. The images were evaluated in comparison with maximum-intensity-projection images (in 21 patients), conventional angiograms (in 21) and CT angiography (in nine). In 17 patients, 3D volume-rendered images were thought to show morphological features most clearly. They were superior to the other methods for demonstrating the precise location of the aneurysm in three patients and in showing the shape of the bleb in another three. 3D volume-rendered MRA can be effectively added to conventional imaging techniques for diagnosis of intracranial aneurysms.
