In this study we optimized high resolution magnetic resonance vessel wall imaging regarding scan duration signal-to-noise (SNR) and contrast-to-noise (CNR). We compared the SNRs and CNRs two clinically used intracranial vessel wall sequences with 5 variants with various trade-offs between scan time, resolution and contrast between vessel wall and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). Compared to the clinically used sequences, we developed a sequence which was considerably faster and had comparable or higher SNRs and CNRs that resulted in a good visibility of the intracranial vessel wall.
