High spatial-resolution multi-contrast MRI of the
carotid artery vessel wall can visualize high-risk
morphological features of plaques in vivo and help
patient risk stratification. The use of a
gadolinium-based contrast agent improves the accuracy of
plaque characterization. In this study we aim to
evaluate DANTE in contrast-enhanced MRI of carotid
artery wall using 2D T1w FSE and 3D FSE (CUBE, GE
Healthcare) in patients. To our knowledge this is the
first study applying DANTE post-contrast.
