The purpose of this study was to investigate the correlation between the T1 value of carotid plaque and signal intensity ratio and to evaluate the clinical usefulness of T1 and T2* values for carotid plaque. Quantitative T1 and T2* mapping using mPSIR have potential to improve the diagnostic accuracy of vulnerability of carotid atherosclerotic plaque.
