Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a non-invasive and useful imaging modality with a high contrast resolution to diagnose craniocervical artery dissections. However, to avoid misinterpretations and misdiagnosis, it is mandatory to understand not only the pathological condition of craniocervical artery dissection, but also the principles of MRI techniques. In this manuscript, the details of MRI findings, especially when using high-resolution vessel wall imaging, are discussed.
