High-resolution magneticresonanceimaging (MRI) has started to play a role in the diagnosis of giantcell arteritis. Evidence of arteritis involving the
PurposeGiant cell arteritis (GCA) is a systemic vasculitis that affects medium-to-large-caliber arteries. Early diagnosis and treatment is essential as involvement of the ophthalmic artery or its branches may cause blindness. Radiographic findings may be variable and non-specific leading to delay in diagnosis.

Magneticresonanceimaging (MRI) findings for temporal arteritis (giantcell arteritis) include loss of the normal flow void in affected vessels from occlusion or slow flow associated with disease.

In 41 patients, imaging results were compared with findings of temporal artery biopsy (TAB). Results: Sixty-one per cent (36/59) of patients were diagnosed
Giantcell arteritis (GCA, also known as Horton disease, cranial arteritis, and temporal arteritis) is the most common of the systemic vasculitides . GCA is also a classic systemic rheumatic disease of older adults; it virtually never occurs in individuals younger than 50 years of age and peaks in...

In the brain, MRI can differentiate between white matter and grey matter and can also be used to diagnose aneurysms and tumors. Because MRI does not use x-rays or other radiation, it is the imaging modality of choice when frequent imaging is required for diagnosis or therapy, especially in the brain.
