Extradural metastatic disease is shown best by MRI, including neural compression. In some skeletal conditions, however, the treatment plan may be influenced by the estimation of structural integrity of bone displayed by high resolution CT. Local practices based on the preferences of the surgeons involved will dictate precise indications. Angiography The increase in the range and quality of less invasive ways of imaging the cerebral arterial tree have removed nearly all the indications for catheter (intraarterial) arteriography for purely diagnostic purposes.

It cannot be overemphasized that the patient needs to have accepted these risks before reaching the angiography department. Most angiography is performed using digital subtraction techniques (DSA), but it is a misapprehension that this increases safety, nor does non-selective aortic arch injection of contrast medium. Angiography is still widely employed to investigate subarachnoid haemorrhage, to evaluate arteriovenous malformations, and as a preliminary to endovascular treatment delivery. In the author’s opinion it should be regarded as contraindicated in the investigation of carotid artery dissection, and, more controversially, may also be contraindicated in carotid stenosis.
