The aim of this study was to develop a PD-T2-shuffled VISTA technique, which can provide co-registered 3D high multi-contrast intracranial vessel wall images with high scan efficiency. Phantom study and healthy volunteers study were performed to validate the feasibility of the proposed method. The results showed that middle cerebral artery vessel wall was clearly depicted on different weighed images of PD-T2-shuffled VISTA.
