Purpose: The aim of this study is to demonstrate 3D TOF magnetic resonance angiography in evaluation of supraaortic vessels. Materials and methods: In the period of 2 years 28 patients, 17 women, 11 men, range age 8 month-85 years, with clinicaland CT diagnose of cephalea (12), ischemic stroke (2), tumor (2), vertebrobasilar sy. (8); were examined on 1.0 T MR unit, using 3D TOF (three dimensional time-of-flie) magnetic resonance angiography with postprocessing images using MIP algorithm to demonstrate supraaortic vessels. Results: In the groupe of 28 patients, 6 had high grade of common or internal carotid artery stenosis, 2 had patological vascularisation in tumor region, 5 had atherosclerotic changes on the supraaortic vessels, 3 had hipoplasia of one vertebral arterie, and 1 had hipoplasia of both carotid arteries.
Conclusion: 3D TOF MR angiography is non-invasive examination, with no radiation, which can be important in confirming the diagnosis of pathology of the supraaortic vessels, and to plane the tretement.
