3D fast magnetic resonance black blood sequence flow-dephasing-prepared spoiled gradient recalled echo was performed to screen basilar artery wall and the ostia of the adjacent branch arteries. Our data suggest that the sequence can be used for high-resolution and large coverage of the basilar artery wall and the ostia of branches including superior cerebral artery, anterior inferior cerebral artery, and posterior inferior cerebral artery.
