Cardiac-gated black blood MRI of the carotid artery bifurcation in normal human subjects shows signal within the lumen suggesting wall thickening or atherosclerotic plaque. This signal was believed to be artifactual, arising from complex flow patterns present at the carotid bifurcation. Computer simulation of the hemodynamics and black blood multislice image acquisition in a model of the carotid bifurcation showed that these artifacts arise from spins recovering their signal within the slow… CONTINUE READING
