Basilar Thrombosis

Thrombosis of the basilar artery is a common finding in stroke patients. CT findings include a dense basilar artery without contrast injection.

The arrow in the left CT indicates the dense basilar artery. Compare this to the normal
basilar artery (indicated by the arrow) from a different patient in the CT to the right.
