    Axial (A and B) and coronal (C) constructive interference in steady-state MR images showing small, bilateral CPA cisterns. The right trigeminal nerve is indicated by arrows. On the left side, the SCA runs parallel to the nerve (arrowheads). Measurements of the cross-sectional areas of the CPA cisterns (white outline) are shown on the same section as the REZ (B).
