Cerebral small vessel disease frequently affects the lenticulostriate arteries, resulting in silent strokes which contribute to progressive cognitive impairment in elderly persons. Recent studies have demonstrated the ability of MRI to non-invasively image these small arteries at 7T; however, ultrahigh magnetic field is not commonly available in clinical practice. This preliminary study evaluates the feasibility of visualizing and characterizing the lenticulostriate arteries using whole-brain and ZOOMit 3D T1-weighted turbo spin-echo at 3T.
