CT angiography of the cerebral arteries | Radiology Reference Article |

All anatomical variants that have been described so far in the literature have been included, and the precommunicating A1 postcommunicating A2 segments of the anterior cerebral artery were analyzed. CT angiography of the cerebral arteries is a noninvasive technique allows visualization of the internal and external carotid arteries and vertebral arteries and can amgiotomografia just the intracranial compartment or also extend down to the arch of the aorta.

We have not found studies using CTA in Mexican population. Anatomical and imaging studies that show the prevalence of these anatomical variants are needed. One of the most common causes of stroke is rupture of aneurysms whose approach requires knowledge of anatomical variants. Angio TC were performed in a helicoidal tomographer, processed in third dimension, multiplane reconstruction, of shading surface and maximal projection intensity reconstructions.

Vascular variants were classified according to the classification of Kayembe et al. Because of this, we believe that CTA is an accurate technique for assessing the hypoplasia variant of the anterior cerebral artery. A minimum of 4 slices MDCT scanners is required, with most modern scanners having many more than this, able to generate much higher quality images.

Similarly, nonparametric correlation tests chi square were used to determine the association between sex and anatomical variants.

Atypical variants in order of frequency were: The mean diameter of the azygos artery was 2. All patients were injected with an intravenous iodinated contrast media UltravistBayer, Germany at a dose of 1 to 2 ml per kg with an injection rate of 4 ml per second. Normal variants of the cerebral circulation at angiotokografia CT angiography.


The right common carotid artery arises from the brachiocephalic trunk while the left ecrebral carotid artery arises directly from the aorta.

Moreover, although 3D TOF MRA allows in vivo visualization of the vasculature, its sensitivity depends on the speed of blood flow in the vessels making visualization of small vessels with low or turbulent blood flow difficult Zhang et al.

Our study is the first to use 3D CTA to report the prevalence of anatomic variants of the anterior cerebral artery and the anterior communicating artery in Mexican population. There was no significant association between the presence of the azygos or the triple ACA artery with other variants.

La double anterior communicating artery was the most prevalent variant in In imaging studies, the most prevalent atypical variants were: Absence and ferebral variants of the A1 segment of the ACA were the most prevalent and should be taken into account since they increase the risk of stroke by decreased blood flow during occlusive thrombotic events or endovascular procedures. The mean diameters obtained of the right and left A1 segment were similar to those obtained in our study.

A retrospective, observational, cross-sectional descriptive study performed at the Department of Human Anatomy and the Department of Radiology, of our institution. Variations in the Anatomy of the Willis’ circle: Synonyms or Alternate Spellings: Angiotomography scans of patients 1 to 99 years of age were included.

However, studies in Serbia and China had a greater prevalence than ours with We found a high prevalence of “atypical” variants. Both methods were analyzed individually and posteriorly joined and with surgical results in both.

A2 segment of the anterior cerebral artery. Cerebrao variants that increase the risk of stroke due to decreased collateral blood flow during occlusive events are the variants absence and hypoplasia of the A1 segment of the anterior cerebral artery.

Contrast injection was manually carried out with a conventional equipament, in the great majority of cases by direct carotid puncture. Following image acquisition, post-processing techniques are applied for better 3D visualization of the vessels and their abnormalities. They ascend behind the sternoclavicular joints, lateral to the thyroid gland and at the level of the upper border of the thyroid cartilage, each one divides into external and internal carotid arteries.

A significant association between the hypoplastic variant of the right A1 segment and hypoplasia of the left A1 and the right A2 was found, while hypoplasia of the left A1 was associated with hypoplasia of the right A2. Some studies do not describe specific variants of the anterior communicating artery and group them as “fenestrations of the AComA”, which limits the anatomical knowledge of this vessel Kayembe et al.

The timing of injection varies, with options including angiotomogrrafia scan delay, test bolus injection, or automated bolus tracking technique.
