This special report introduces native flow quantitative imaging for evaluating stroke risk. Moreover, the advantage of combining three imaging techniques [magnetic resonance angiography (MRA), phase-contrast (PC) flow imaging, and arterial spin-labeling imaging] is shown to be beneficial for responding to ischemia and preserving viable neurons. These quantitative imaging techniques provide authoritative information for diagnosing impending stroke and selecting appropriate treatment.
