The aim of this study was to evaluate the clinical value of multislice 3-dimensional computed tomographic angiography (3D-CTA) in the preoperative assessment of meningiomas. A total of 331 cases with meningiomas confirmed by CT and MRI were examined using 3D-CTA. The locations of the tumors were observed to be as follows: parasagittal and falcine in 125 cases, sphenoidal in 39 cases, in the olfactory groove in 19 cases, tentorial in 21 cases, parasellar in 33 cases, petroclival in 29 cases, intraventricular in 7 cases and on the convexity of the brain in 58 cases. The reconstructed images were processed by shaded volume rendering, maximum intensity projection and color-shaded surface display. The 3D-CTA images were used to imitate the surgical approach. Surgery was performed according to the information provided in the 3D-CTA images. 3D-CTA provided clear 3D images of the meningioma and the relationship with the adjacent vessels and the skull base, and demonstrated the optimal surgical approach for removing the neoplasm. The results of 3D-CTA corresponded extremely well with the surgical observations. 3D-CTA is able to provide 3D images of the meningioma, adjacent vessels and the bones in the skull base. Furthermore, 3D-CTA supplies information vital in the selection of the optimal surgical approach and information that aids the management of the sinus during the surgery. 3D-CTA is of great value in the preoperative evaluation of meningiomas.
