Intracranial artery atherosclerosis is a key contributor of stroke. MR evaluation of the vessel wall has been technically challenging because of the difficulty of suppressing blood and CSF at the same time. In this study, a simultaneous blood and CSF suppression was developed and tested in vivo. This technique essentially provides an effective way to achieve multi-contrast intracranial atherosclerosis imaging, creating a unique solution to study the clinical impact of intracranial artery disease.
