Aortic arch injections according to Theron's method have been performed in patients with cerebral ischemia. Digital subtraction angiograms with modified windowing (low and narrow) have been used for better visualization of cerebral parenchymal condition. This "cerebral parenchymography" allows much easier understanding of cerebral parenchymal vascularization on angiographic imaging. Although further study is necessary to estimate accurate cerebral blood flow, this technique can enable an easy and quick understanding of the overall cerebral hemodynamics.
