This study proposed a dual-contrast Volumetric Isotropic Turbo spin echo Acquisition (dVISTA) sequence that allows both T1 and T2 cerebral venous thrombus imaging. In-vivo experiments indicated that dVISTA provide adequate image contrast as conventional T1/T2 imaging, and the clinical feasibility of this technique was further validated by CVT patients’ scan. By assembling flow-suppression, T1/T2 contrast in one 6-min whole brain scan, dVISTA has the potential to detect and differentiate thrombus in clinical routine.
