Abstract

We performed magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) and susceptibility-weighted imaging (SWI) to observe cerebral changes during a migraine attack in a 28-year-old man. MRA revealed regional arterial spasm, and findings of SWI were consistent with decreased blood flow and/or venous dilatation. Because these noninvasive techniques can be performed repeatedly at short intervals, they can be useful for evaluating hemodynamic changes during and after migraine attacks.<br>
