We have developed conventional and transparent 3D MR cisternography to investigate the spatial relationship between the contours of aneurysmal complex and the perianeurysmal structures including the cranial nerves, dural fold, cranial base bone, and brain parenchyma. Volume data obtained by a T2-weighted 3D fast spin-echo sequence were reconstructed by using a perspective volume-rendering algorithm with a transluminal imaging technique. 3D MR cisternograms provide useful anatomic information in the therapeutic and follow-up management of unruptured cerebral aneurysms.
