In this study, we improved TOF-MRA and T1w-SPACE to a higher resolution for imaging perforating arteries and intracranial vessel walls at 7T. With the combination of the two techniques, we are for the first time able to depict the position of perforators and the vessel wall lesion in patients with ICAD. Small changes within the vessel wall may be revealed, and the certainty of the diagnosis may become better established, enabling better therapeutic management.
