Spontaneous intracranial arterial dissection may cause subarachnoid or rarely intraventricular hemorrhage. The clinical presentation may resemble aneurysmal rupture. Experience using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) in establishing the diagnosis of intracranial arterial dissection has been limited. We report three patients with intracranial arterial dissection and describe the correlation between findings on conventional angiography and MRI or MRA.
