Infarct pattern referring single or multiple infarction lesions of patients with ischemic stroke is a feasible imaging marker to predict future stroke recurrence. The aim of this study was to detect large artery atherosclerosis features resulting in single or multiple infarction lesions in patients with non-cardiac acute and sub-acute ischemic stroke using the combined intra- and extra-cranial vessel wall MR imaging method. The results demonstrated that in large artery atherosclerosis, infarct pattern may be associated with the vulnerability of atherosclerotic plaques, and this combined imaging method can be used to explore the vascular pathology and predict recurrence of ischemic stroke.
