A dual-echo white-blood (WB) and black-blood (BB) imaging technique was developed to visualize the lenticulostriate arteries at 3T. The WB echo, effectively a flow-compensated time-of-flight image, and the flow-sensitized BB echo complement each other such that using these two inherently co-registered echoes in unison helps to better depict and delineate the vessels.
