  • Figure 1
    T1-weighted fat-saturation sequence images of the neck
     

    T1-weighted fat-saturation sequence images of the neck, showing the lumen of the carotid arteries as a signal void due to the moving blood.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: T1-weighted fat-saturation sequence images of the neck;

    The image showing that the rim of high signal around the dissected left carotid artery is due to the presence of acute haematoma.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: T1-weighted fat-saturation sequence images of the neck;

    The image showing that the abnormal high intensity is masked by the high signal from fat on the non- fat-saturation images.
