Computer-assisted morphometric measurements of vessel wall thickness. (A) Representative vessel wall thickness measurements on a DP-TSE image. Vessel wall inner and outer boundaries are traced and wall thicknesses are calculated along these traces using a semiautomatic program. (B) Vessel wall thicknesses measured from DP-TSE were significantly thinner (35% on average) than those from the EPI images due to less distortion and partial volume effect.
