Neurovascular Imaging will cease to be published by BMC as of 30 November 2018. BMC will continue to host an archive of all articles previously published in the journal and all articles published in Neurovascular Imaging during its time with BMC will remain fully searchable via the BMC website.

Featured article: Neurovascular 4DFlow MRI (Phase Contrast MRA): emerging clinical applications

"Recent advances in 4DFlow MRI (Phase Contrast MRA) acquisition and reconstruction enable high resolution exams to be obtained in practical imaging times. 4DFlow MRI provides images of vascular morphology and quantitative measurements of blood velocity throughout a 3D imaging volume ... This review provides an update for clinicians interested in 4DFlow MRI of the brain."
