In brief: CT

I'm not a radiologist so i'll be curious to see how a radiologist will answer this but i believe that in most instances, ct with contrast would be superior to mri.
Moreover, ct is less expensive and much quicker. Mri, which can take 40 minutes, may be blurred by the movement of a pulsating aneurysm. The biggest advantage to MRI for this is the absence of radiation.
