To review the indications of diagnostic neuroangiography.
To explain a step-wise check list for appropriate preprocedural assessment,
technique of procedure and postprocedural care.
To review the angiographic intra cranial vascular anatomy with illustrative examples of common pathologies.
Neuroangiography is an integral investigation in the management of patients with neuro- vascular diseases.
It is used for diagnosis,
but in many instances,
may be followed up with interventional treatment in the same sitting.
A sound understanding of the principles of appropriate periprocedural care and anatomy,
angiography technique and angiographic appearance of pathology are vital for the test to be diagnostic.

Diagnostic neuroangiography is an essential investigation used in the evaluation of neuro vascular diseases.
Basic knowledge of angiographic technique and image interpretation are important for radiology residents and our poster summarizes the must to know information on this topic.
