This study was aimed at investigating the clinical value of CUBE MRI for high resolution imaging and susceptibility weighted imaging (SWI) in the diagnosis of cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST). The sensitivity, specificity, positive predictive value, and negative predictive value for 3D-CUBE T1 and SWI were calculated respectively. In this study, the diagnosis results of T1 weighted CUBE were better than that of SWI in comparison with the referential diagnosis in the detection of CVST. We therefore demonstrated that the T1 weighted CUBE MRI provided more effective usefulness than SWI in the diagnosis efficacy of the CVST.
