An investigational version of fat-suppressed black blood
(BB) 3D FSE T1WI (CUBE T1) with imaging coverage of the
neck and head and acceptable scan time might be useful
in assessment of stenotic lesion in the carotid
arteries. The purpose was to evaluate the detection of
the stenotic lesion in proximal internal carotid artery
using BB imaging with CUBE T1 in comparison of MRA with
3D TOF. This technique can be better to detect the
stenotic lesions and the early stage of atherosclerotic
lesions than MRA.
