One-stop magnetic resonance (MR) vessel wall imaging that includes cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR), intracranial and cervical carotid arteries imaging is of considerable interest for clinical diagnosis of vascular diseases, such as ischemic stroke. Due to the small cross-sectional size of the vessel wall and susceptibility effects, one-stop MR vessel wall imaging remains challenging. In this work, intracranial and cervical carotid arteries, and CMR imaging was performed simultaneously by using a dedicated 48-channel coil system. Moreover, intracranial and carotid arterial wall images with an isotropic spatial resolution of 0.63 mm can be acquired by using the head and carotid coil system within 7.7 minutes.
