Cerebral artery MR angiography, bilateral carotis arteries, anterior cerebral artery, pericallosal artery and mid cerebral artery, Willis Polygon arterial structures, basilar artery, and arteria cerebri posterior branches were normal; no aneurysm, malformation or displacement were detected; venous MR angiography revealed a slightly weakened right transverse sinus calibration (variation) and normal sagittal sinus, straight sinus, left transverse and sigmoid sinus alignments and calibrations.
