Both time-of-flight and phase contrast magnetic resonance angiography iraages are combined with stationary tissue images to provide data depicting two contrast relationships yielding intrinsic discrimination of brain matter and flowing blood. A Computer analysis is based on nearest neighbor Segmentation and the Connection between anatomical structures to partition the images into different tissue categories; from which, high resolution brain parenchymal and vascular surfaces are constructed and rendered in juxtaposition, aiding in surgical planning.
