, Germany) with a neck array coil. The diagnostic imaging protocol included axial T2-weighted sequences with short tau inversion recovery (STIR) from the base of the scull to aorticarch (TR/TE 5010/71 ms, TI 170 ms, flip angle (FA) 70°, receiver bandwidth 287 Hz/pixel, matrix size 256 x 256, slice thickness 3 mm, gap 0.3 mm and field of view (FOV) 18 x 18 cm). Axial slices that covered the entire primary tumour were selected for DWI and DCE-MR imaging.
DWI images were acquired in axial plane using pulsed spin-echo echo-planar image sequence (TR/TE 3600/86 ms, receiver

We use a classical approach using the Seldinger technique. After the puncture of the femoral artery we introduce the angiographic catheter fist into the femoral artery and then via the aorta and the aorticarch into the common carotid artery.
