We sought to achieve high-quality simultaneous black- and gray-blood MR imaging using the CS based dual contrast imaging technique proposed on 2015. The performances on the blood suppression efficiency, image quality and morphological measurements for the CS based dual-contrast imaging technique were investigated. Seven healthy volunteers and five patients with carotid artery stenosis were recruited in this study. STR, CTR were calculated. LA and WA were measured. The comparisons for the black- and gray-blood image quality and the presence of plaque calcifications were implemented. This technique provides spatially matched black- and gray- images and excellent visualization for vessel wall imaging.
