Imaging cerebro- vasculopathy after radio-chemotherapy in pediatric Medulloblastoma survivors, by assessing internal media thickening of the external carotid artery through ultrasound and comparing black blood high resolution vessel wall imaging sequences with TOF-MR-Angiography, Volume Interpolated GRE/┬▒CE and T2 tse fat saturated sequences. The underlying study indicates a superiority of black blood sequences in early detection of vascular changes, which might lead to vasculopathy, in comparison to the commonly used sequences. Thus follow-up MRI protocols might include black blood vessel wall images.
