Intra-Cranial Arterial Stenosis (ICAS) represents a source of risk to develop stroke. There is some genetic and ethnic determinant in having a major risk. Non invasive diagnosis rely on Trans-Cranial Doppler (TCD) and Magnetic Resonance Angiography, while Computed Tomography has the best accuracy to be compared to the more invasive Digital Subtraction Angiography.
