Dual-venc 4D flow MRI was applied in 6 healthy volunteers at a 7T MRI scanner at two different approximately isotropic spatial image resolutions, low resolution with (1.1mm)3 and high resolution with (0.8mm)3 voxel volumes. The aim of this study was to systematically investigate the potential of high-resolution k-t GRAPPA accelerated dual-venc 4D flow MRI compared to the low-resolution scan with standard GRAPPA with respect to improved image quality (vessel sharpness and depiction of small intracranial vessels) and quantification of intracranial flow parameters (net flow, peak velocity).
