  • High sensitivity and specificity of 4D-CTA in the detection of cranial arteriovenous shunts. [Journal Article]

  • CONCLUSIONS: 4D-CTA has very high sensitivity and specificity for the detection of intracranial arteriovenous shunts. Based on these results, 4D-CTA may replace DSA imaging as a first modality in the diagnostic workup in a large number of patients suspected of a cranial dAVF or bAVM, especially if there is no doubt regarding the 4D-CTA diagnosis.• 4D-CTA was shown to have a high diagnostic accuracy and is an appropriate, less invasive replacement for DSA as a diagnostic tool for cranial arteriovenous shunts in the majority of suspected cases. • Doubt regarding the 4D-CTA result should prompt additional DSA imaging, as it is associated with false negatives. • False-positive 4D-CTA results are rare, but do exist.
