Abstract

Postcontrast MR angiography compliments the standard spinal MR imaging study by improving detection and display of normal and abnormal intradural vessels, primarily veins. Detection of abnormal veins facilitates diagnosis of spinal vascular malformations and vascular tumors. The most useful application has been in screening for spinal dural arteriovenous fistulas, in which MR angiography demonstrates the medullary vein into which the fistula drains, thus allowing noninvasive identification of the spinal level of the fistula.
