Contrast-enhanced 3D fast spin echo black-blood images at the 3 T may be able to differentiate enhancement patterns of intracranial atherosclerotic plaques (eccentric), especially in the non-significant intracranial artery stenosis patients. High-resolution 3D black-blood images could help precise stroke subtyping.
