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
