Vessel Wall MRI (VW-MRI) is an emerging MR sequence used for diagnosis, characterization, and treatment planning of cerebrovascular diseases. Although VW-MRI is not yet routinely used, most papers have emphasized its role in several aspects of the management of cerebrovascular diseases. Nowadays, no VW-MRI sequence optimized for the intracranial imaging is commercially available, thus the Spin Echo sequences are the more effective sequences for this purpose. Moreover, as one of the principal technical requirements for intracranial VW-MR imaging is to achieve both the suppression of blood in vessel lumen and of the outer cerebrospinal fluid, different suppression techniques have been developed.

Abstract

Vessel Wall MRI (VW-MRI) is an emerging MR sequence used for diagnosis, characterization, and treatment planning of cerebrovascular diseases. Although VW-MRI is not yet routinely used, most papers have emphasized its role in several aspects of the management of cerebrovascular diseases. Nowadays, no VW-MRI sequence optimized for the intracranial imaging is commercially available, thus the Spin Echo sequences are the more effective sequences for this purpose. Moreover, as one of the principal technical requirements for intracranial VW-MR imaging is to achieve both the suppression of blood in vessel lumen and of the outer cerebrospinal fluid, different suppression techniques have been developed. This short report provides the technical parameters of our VW-MR sequence developed over 3-years’ experience.
