Maximum intensity reconstruction (MIP) from a contrast-enhanced MRA (a) and postcontrast 2D BBMRI (b) images through a right vertebral artery plaque in a 49 year old woman with multifocal intracranial arterial narrowing presenting with an acute distal anterior cerebral artery infarction., The 2D BBMRI slice (b), positioned through focal narrowing of the proximal V4 segment of the right vertebral artery (a, line), demonstrates eccentric wall thickening and enhancement (arrowhead) with central hypointesity (arrow) representing a partially calcified core. BBMRI was achieved using double inversion recovery with the inversion time set to the null point of blood
