We analyzed two sequences: T2 sequence for visualization of cerebral parenchyma; 3D TOF sequence for the assessment of CoW morphology.
This correlation is explained by the fact that MRA 3D TOF sequence register flowing of the blood (speed of blood less than 5 cm/s is virtually not registered) providing not only morphological but also functional findings on CoW [10].
