This study employed isotropic high-resolution SPACE or VISTA sequence to explore the association between intracranial ICA steno-occlusive disease caused by atherosclerosis and diffuse wall thickening (DWT) in ipsilateral petrous ICA. The results indicated that the diffuse wall thickening of petrous ICA is commonly seen among patients with steno-occlusive disease causing by atherosclerotic plaque in intracranial ICA, especially in occluded intracranial ICA.
