Abstract: The purpose of our study is to compare basilar artery diameters (BAD) measured by T2WI to diameters measured by TOF MR angiography (MRA). By doing this, we hope to understand how compatible these two methodologies are with each other. We used data from 100 patients (59 females, 41 males) who underwent a session of both T2W MRI and TOF MRA at the same time (ages between 18 and 83). We measured BAD by both T2WI and TOF MRA in three different levels. We then compared these diameters measured by two different methodologies to each other. In an area between the vertebrobasilar junction and posterior cerebral artery, all data measured by T2WI and TOF MRA in three different levels were analyzed. Average diameters measured by T2WI and TOF MRA turned out to be 79.5% correlated with each other. As a result of our mathematical model that we came up with through regression analysis, we calculated that measurements taken by T2WI on mid-pontine levels could predict TOF MRA measures with 78.3% accuracy. In T2WI and TOF MRA, average diameters measured were 2.982 +/- 0.4717 and 3.205 +/- 0.4281 mm, respectively. Statistical analyses showed that images measured by T2W series were significantly smaller than those measured by TOF MRA (p < 0.05). Our study showed that BAD measured by T2WI were smaller than those measured by TOF MRA. We think that it will be beneficial to refer our results to avoid T2WI and TOF MRA mismatch when evaluating BAD.
