magnetic resonance (MR) vessel wall imaging that includes cardiovascular
magnetic resonance (CMR), intracranial and cervical carotid arteries imaging is
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.
