Abstract

Purpose: To assess the diagnostic accuracy of multi-slice computed tomography (MSCT) angiography compared to digital subtraction angiography (DSA) in detecting residual or recurrent aneurysms in patients undergoing aneurysm clipping surgery. Material and Methods: Eight patients with nine aneurysms who had both MSCTA and DSA were included in the study. Two independent experienced neuroradiologists evaluated the examinations. Results: Accuracy, sensitivity, and specificity of detecting residual or recurrent aneurysms on MSCTA were 0.80, 0.60, and 1.00, respectively. Positive and negative predictive values were 1.00 and 0.71, respectively. Conclusion: MSCTA is a promising technique for evaluating residual or recurrent aneurysms in patients undergoing surgical treatment of aneurysm with titanium clips.
