BACKGROUND Conventional arterial imaging focuses on the vessel lumen but lacks specificity because different pathologies produce similar luminal defects. Wall imaging can characterize extracranial arterial pathology, but imaging intracranial walls has been limited by resolution and signal constraints. Higher-field scanners may improve visualization of these smaller vessels. METHODS Three-tesla contrast-enhanced MRI was used to study the intracranial arteries from a consecutive series of… CONTINUE READING
