Examples of multi-contrast plaque imaging (T1w, T2w, PDw) CMR images. The first column shows a segment of the aortic arch without a plaque, the second shows a plaque <4 mm-thickness, the third shows a stable plaque and the fourth shows a vulnerable plaque ≥4 mm-thickness (AHA type VII plaque with a heterogeneous composition with iso- and hyperintense lipid-rich areas, hypointense nodular calcifications and a rough plaque surface with ulcerations)
