Abstract

High-resolution constructive interference in the steady state sequences were established as state-ofthe- art imaging for the segmentation and three-dimensional visualization of complex neurovascular conflicts at the cranial nerve root entry zones. Detailed in-vivo imaging techniques analyzing the pathologic association between morphological neurovascular changes at the surface of the medulla oblongata and essential hypertension are still missing. We here in deal with a new translational technology of real-time magnetic resonance imaging for the in-vivo visualization of neurovascular compression in the posterior fossa. The opportunities of our real-time, dynamic imaging tools are presented with an example to provide an exquisite translation to the clinical and scientific implementation especially in younger patients with the focus on essential arterial hypertension.
