It is important to accurately identify carotid artery intraplaque hemorrhage (IPH) due to its significant association with ischemic stroke. MP-RAGE sequence has been demonstrated to be the best approach to detect carotid IPH. Recently, investigators proposed SNAP imaging technique which allows non-contrast MR angiography and identifying IPH simultaneously. This study sought to investigate the performance of SNAP imaging in detecting carotid IPH by comparing with MP-RAGE. We found that SNAP imaging detected more IPHs and showed larger IPH size than MP-RAGE, suggesting SNAP imaging might be a sensitive imaging tool to detect IPH.
