To illustrate the anatomy of intracranial arteries, we reviewed the literature and chose many illustrations of brain vessel anatomy to include in the first three chapters. Relevant microangiograms prepared from cadaver brains demonstrate how individual arteries penetrate, course, and distribute in successive sections of the brain [61, 62], and magnetic resonance (MR) images of the brains of volunteers obtained using a Philips Intera Achieva 3.0-T Quasar Dual (Philips Healthcare Best The Netherlands) illustrate the course and distribution of normal intracranial arteries.
