Arterial wall: To see detail in an arterial wall you need to have an arteriographic study. A regular MRI would not likely show this.

Cervical MRI: would not be adequate, further studies would be necessary even if the cervical MRI by chance happened to demonstrate a possible abnormality like a dissection or vascular injury
