Stereoscopic DSA of the central nervous system

  • 24 Accesses

  • 8 Citations


Stereoscopic DSA is performed with alternate exposures from a twin focal X-ray tube (6,5 cm focal separation). Excellent intravenous and intraarterial DSA images of the cerebral vessels are obtained with separation of overlapping parts of the normal and abnormal vasculature. The clinical value of DSA has been enhanced by use of stereoscopic DSA.
