Low b-value DWI was assessed as an alternative technique for demonstrating mural edema in patients with large vessel vasculitis. The robust black blood effect, significant increased signal intensity in patients with active disease, and rapid acquisition times of low b-value DW imagse compared favorably with conventional ecg gated or non-gated fast spin echo acquisitions in this small feasibility study.
