Prompt diagnosis of large artery vasculopathies is important to avoid significant morbidities that can arise from delayed diagnosis. This is difficult however, as patients frequently present with nonspecific sign and symptoms and luminal imaging techniques are limited in the detection of non-stenotic disease. Vessel wall imaging is an emerging technique for vasculopathy evaluation throughout the body. We compare quantitative and qualitative measures of 2D and 3D vessel wall imaging techniques in patients with suspected large artery vasculopathy.
