3D dark blood MRI is quickly becoming the preferred methodology for evaluating atherosclerotic plaque burden non-invasively. Here we propose the development and optimization of a 3D vessel wall imaging protocol for multiple vascular beds in the same session using a variable flip angle SPACE sequence.
