The stability of intracranial of middle cerebral artery(MCA) and basilar artery( BA) plaques related to the stroke events is a crucial issue. However, the discrimination of the plaque’s stability could be rather challenging. Compared with traditional imaging methods such as CTA, MRA or DSA, high-resolution vessel wall MR imaging(HR-VW-MRI) method could demonstrate the abnormality of the vessel wall .It could also potentially evaluate the stability of the intracranial artery. This study aims to compare HR-VW-MRI’s characteristic features of MCA plaque with BA plaque, and to figure out the relationship between plaques’ imaging features with the stroke events.
