BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: This study was to evaluate the diagnostic value of improved motion-sensitized driven-equilibrium (iMSDE)-prepared 3D T1-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) (iMSDE-3DMRI) in intracranial vertebrobasilary dissection (VBD) and to compare iMSDE-3DMRI images with those obtained using 2D high-resolution (HR) MRI with respect to their diagnostic performance in VBD.
MATERIALS AND METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed 105 lesions from 102 patients who underwent multimodal imaging and contrast-enhanced iMSDE-3DMRI (CE-iMSDE-3DMRI). The 2D-HRMRI protocol comprised four axial HR images. The CE-iMSDE-3DMRI images were reformatted in the axial, coronal, and sagittal planes. The 2D-HRMRI-based diagnosis was compared with the final diagnosis. The 2D-HRMRI and CE-iMSDE-3DMRI images were examined independently for the diagnosis performance of dissection.
RESULTS: VBD was confirmed in 66 lesions in 63 patients: 17 patients had confirmed atherosclerosis, and 22 had no lesions in the vertebrobasilar artery. Diagnostic performances of 2D-HRMRI (AUC, 0.839+/-0.04: sensitivity, 94.0: specificity, 79.5: diagnostic accuracy, 88.6) CE-iMSDE-3DMRI (AUC, 0.847+/-0.04: sensitivity, 84.8: specificity, 84.6: diagnostic accuracy, 84.7) and 2D-HRMRI+CE-iMSDE-3DMRI (AUC, 0.893+/-0.03: sensitivity, 97.0: specificity, 85.0: diagnostic accuracy, 92.5) were good. Comparisons of the diagnostic performance of 2D-HRMRI andCE-iMSDE-3DMRI showed that combined interpretation of 2D-HRMRI and iMSDE-3DMRI yields a significantly higher diagnostic performance than that of 2D-HRMRI (P=0.042).
CONCLUSIONS: CE-iMSDE-3DMRI showed good diagnostic performance for the diagnosis of intracranial VBD. These results suggest that CE-iMSDE-3DMRI can be used in combination with 2D-HRMRI for the diagnosis of intracranial VBD.
