In brief: Yes

Has to be a CTA (CT angiogram).
CT scan of the head without contrast doesn't detect aneurysms unless they are larger. CT scan of the head with contrast has a slightly better chance. CTA of the head is good for seeing aneurysms. See radiologyinfo.org and stroke association.org for more details.
