Intracranial and carotid atherosclerotic plaques are responsible for about 75% of ischemic stroke, the leading cause of mortality and morbidity worldwide. A 3D intra- and extra-cranial arterial vessel wall joint imaging was developed for simultaneously evaluating intracranial and carotid arterial plaques. The aim of this study was to assess the clinical potential of the 3D joint imaging technique in a large-scale patients with recent cerebrovascular symptoms. In general, this joint imaging method allows satisfactory image quality and comprehensive evaluation of atherosclerotic disease, and it has great potential to be used for optimizing treatment.
