Object. The small size and tortuous anatomy of intracranial arteries require that flow-diverter stents in the intracranial vasculature have a low profile, high flexibility, and excellent trackability. However, these features limit the degree of radiopacity that can be incorporated into the stents. Visualization of these stents and the degree of stent deployment using conventional radiographic techniques is suboptimal. To overcome this drawback, the authors used a new combined angiography/CT suite that uses flat-panel detector technology for higher resolution angiography.
