Definite diagnosis of internal carotid artery occlusion no longer satisfies neurosurgeons’ treatment needs for vascular recanalization. This study sought to investigate what information provided by 3D head-neck combined vessel wall cardiovascular magnetic resonance imaging could be useful for neurosurgeon to make the therapy plan. Our study turned out that 3D MR vessel wall imaging is capable of diagnosing internal carotid artery occlusion, and patients with short extent of occlusion are benefit from the vascular recanalization therapy. Our results suggest it is useful for those patients to undergo 3D MR vessel wall imaging for making their therapy plan.
