Giant Cell arteritis (GCA) is a large vessel vasculitis, typically involving the aorta and its branches with predilection for the scalp arteries. Intracranial involvement is still part of ongoing research. We assess inflammation of the intracranial arteries on 3D-black-blood magnetic resonance imaging (3D-CS-BB-MRI) in patients with GCA and age-matched controls.
