Arterial remodeling of advanced basilar atherosclerosis: a 3-tesla MRI study.

BACKGROUND There are limited studies on wall imaging of human basilar artery (BA). Our aim was to investigate remodeling mode of advanced BA atherosclerosis using 3-T MRI. METHODS Thirty-two consecutive symptomatic patients with atherosclerotic BA stenosis >or=70% were imaged with a 3-T magnetic resonance scanner. Proton density-weighted (PDW) cross… CONTINUE READING
