|Official Title:||High Resolution Vessel Wall Imaging by Magnetic Resonance Imaging of Intracranial Vasculopathies|
|Estimated Study Start Date :||September 2018|
|Estimated Primary Completion Date :||July 2019|
|Estimated Study Completion Date :||July 2019|
Patients diagnosed intracranial vasculopathy will be imaged further by high resolution vessel wall MR imaging on a 3Tesla MR scanner.
Other: Vessel Wall MR imaging
Magnetic resonance images of the intracranial arteries will be acquired using the 3 Tesla MR scanners. Intracranial vessels will be imaged by high resolution vessel wall MR imaging to characterize vessel wall enhancement characteristics and wall thickness.
- Degree of intracranial artery vessel wall enhancement [ Time Frame: During acute phase of symptoms (approximately 0-14 days from onset of symptoms) ]Degree of enhancement will be categorized as circumferential, eccentric, or absent
- Degree of intracranial artery vessel wall thickness [ Time Frame: During acute phase of symptoms (approximately 0-14 days from onset of symptoms) ]Thickness will be measured in millimeters
