Time-of-flight angiography (ToF) was presented for the first time by Suryan and used by Hinshaw et al.This protocol allows to visualize blood flow within the vessels in vivo without the contrast administra-tion, which is possible due to the large magnitude of magnetization, received from the moving spinsand small magnitude of magnetization received from the stationary spins. Fourteen participants (male:female = 7:7) were analyzed, who have never been diagnosed with any central nervous system diseaseas well as any cardiovascular, metabolic disease and have never had any trauma. Although, the gold stan-dard of cerebral vessel analysis is still DSA, ultra high-field 3D ToF-MRA shows clearer picture of all LSAsand the branches of LSAs in comparison to poor in contrast DSA imaging. Ultra high-field time-of-flightMRA is a valuable method in visualizing small perforating arteries, which can be used in the future as adiagnostic tool for clinical practice. The diversity of LSAs morphometry is vast and may alter during aging,thus the clinical anatomy of those vessels should be further investigated in vivo.
