The current study aims to determine the accuracy of synthetic MRI sequences generated from post-acquisition processing of a single sequence compared with sequences imaged from conventional multi-contrast Weighted (MCW) methods in assessing the composition of Carotid artery plaques like calcification and intraplaque hemorrhage (IPH). It was concluded that synthetic MRI sequences are comparable to conventional MCW methods.
