Yes: If any intervention is required , follow the advise of your doctors , neglect may cause disaster .Recent advanced techniques, highly trained professionals , results are superb. Good luck.

Probably ok: Ct angiogram measurement of a brain aneurysm is more accurate than measurement on mri. Regarding having a heart ct angio after a recent head angio, you should be safe if heart ct angio is done 2 days after the head ct angio and if you have normal kidney functions.
