Microanatomy of the subcallosal artery

This article examines in-vivo microanatomy of the subcallosal artery branching from the anterior communicating artery (ACoA) using time-of-flight (TOF) magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) at 7 Tesla, proving that high-resolution in-vivo 7 T TOF MRA can precisely show the microanatomy of the subcallosal artery.
Key Points:

• In-vivo 7 Tesla TOF MRA can delineate the subcallosal artery microanatomy.
• Three distinct course patterns of the subcallosal artery were identified.
• Branching angles from ACoA significantly differed between subcallosal artery course patterns.
