The lenticulostriate artery may be associated with lacunar infarction. We aimed to visualize the lenticulostriate artery and explore the correlation between the number and length of lenticulostriate arteries and the number and volume of lacunar infarctions using High-Resolution Vessel Wall Imaging (HR-VWI) on a 3T MR scanner. The results indicated that the length of the lenticulostriate artery was associated with the number of lacunar infarctions. The lenticulostriate artery can be well visualized with HR-VWI, and the length of the artery may be associated with lacunar infarction.
