Carotid T2* weighted images have multiple applications, including differentiating plaque components and detecting ultrasmall superparamagnetic iron oxide (USPIO) contrast agents. The current work develops and optimizes the three-dimensional black-blood multi-echo T2* weighted sequence through Bloch simulation and volunteer scans.
