The lenticulostriate arteries (LSAs) with small diameters of a few hundred microns take origin directly from the high flow middle cerebral artery (MCA), making them especially susceptible to damage (e.g. by hypertension). This study aims to present high resolution (isotropic ?0.5?mm), black blood MRI for the visualization and characterization of LSAs at both 3?T and 7?T.
