Only a few years after its introduction into neuroradiologic diagnostics, computer-assisted tomography has established a preeminent position in the field. However, it should not be forgotten that even this method has its limitations and that the results obtained can be misleading in some cases; thus, traditional neuroradiologic examination methods, especially angiography, retain their value.
