Brief Answer:

DSA.

Detailed Answer:

Hello,

The best examination to reveal any aneurysm is DSA (Digital Subtraction Angiography).

It is an invasive examination done generally under anaesthesia, so, there are associated risks too, such as bleeding, allergic reactions, etc.

Hope I have answered your query.

Take care

Regards,
