Fusion imaging of 3D MR cisternography/angiography was used for the assessment of the vascular bulging finding detected by MR angiography from the viewpoint of the outer wall configuration of the corresponding internal carotid artery depicted by MR cisternography. With a fusion image, useful information was obtained to distinguish an infundibular dilation and enlarged origin of the normal posterior communicating artery from an aneurysm. This imaging technique can be a feasible addition to a noninvasive screening of cerebrovascular lesions with MR angiography alone.
