To explore the potential for high-resolution MR imaging using IDEAL FSE-T2WI as compared to FSE-T2WI in the assessment of the basilar artery wall. High-resolution FSE(A/P), FSE(R/L) and IDEAL FSE(A/P) T2W images were acquired from basilar artery of 30 patients using a 3.0T MRI scanner.The threeimage sets were evaluated for overall image quality and graded using a 4-point Likert scale.IDEAL FSE-T2WI (A/P) scores is higher than FSE-T2WI (A/P) and FSE-T2WI (R/L).FSE-T2WI (A/P), FSE-T2WI (R/L) andIDEAL FSE-T2WI (A/P) difference with statistical significance,respectively.IDEAL FSE-T2WI images showed improved image quality compared to FSE-T2WI technique at 3T.
