Arterial dissection is a significant cause of stroke in younger patients. A safe and feasible tool for early diagnosis is needed to prevent neurologic sequelae. Direct imaging findings of dissection were well visualized by HR-MR imaging, and detection of a dissection flap on CE-T1WI is the most diagnostic finding. HR-MR imaging could be a useful and non-invasive diagnostic tool for diagnosis of arterial dissection involving the intracranial vertebrobasilar system.
