Primary angiitis of the central nervous system(PACNS) is a kind of rare disease,but the clinical diagnosis is difficult. Recently, high-resolution HR-3D-VW-MRI(3-dimensional vessel wall MR imaging) method has been used to evaluate cerebral vessels because it could directly show the vessel wall as well the lumen;thus it can assist in differentiating various types of vasculopathy. The purpose of our study was to summarize the typical imaging performance of PACNS and evaluate the value of 3D- VW-MRI sequence in demonstrating the detailed information in detection, diagnosis, evaluation, and follow-up for PACNS.
