High-resolution Vessel Wall Magnetic Resonance Imaging in Intracranial Aneurysms and Brain Arteriovenous Malformations.

Top Magn Reson Imaging 2016 Apr;25(2):49-55

Over the last several years, the advent of intracranial high-resolution vessel wall magnetic resonance imaging (VW-MRI) has provided a new lens with which to view cerebrovascular disease that has not previously been available with conventional imaging. It has already fundamentally changed the way that steno-occlusive diseases are evaluated at many academic centers. This review focuses on current and emerging applications of intracranial high-resolution VW-MRI in the clinical evaluation of intracranial aneurysms and brain arteriovenous malformations. Examples are provided from our clinical practice.
