OBJECTIVE: Intracranial aneurysms are a public health issue with a potential for rupturing, causing significant morbidity/mortality. The prevalence of unruptured intracranial aneurysms, including those that are asymptomatic, varies largely, since it has been determined through autopsy studies as well as conventional angiography. However, computed tomography (CT) angiography, a less invasive procedure, has replaced the use of conventional angiography in the recent decades. The objective of the present study is to determine the prevalence of incidental aneurysms. METHODS: The present study reviews all CT angiography cases within the last decade at a single institution. RESULTS: Out of 2195 cases included in the study, 39 (1.8%) were found to have asymptomatic unruptured aneurysms. CONCLUSION: An increased number of asymptomatic incidental aneurysms was detected.
