High spatial-resolution multi-contrast MRI of the carotid artery vessel wall can visualize high-risk morphological features of plaques in vivo and help patient risk stratification. The use of a gadolinium-based contrast agent improves the accuracy of plaque characterization. In this study we aim to evaluate DANTE in contrast-enhanced MRI of carotid artery wall using 2D T1w FSE and 3D FSE (CUBE, GE Healthcare) in patients. To our knowledge this is the first study applying DANTE post-contrast.
