MRI Scores for Cerebral Small Vessel Disease and Prediction of Dementia

Miércoles, Agosto 5, 2020

Using MRI to score cerebral small-vessel disease may help predict dementia.

Cerebrovascular disease increases the risk for dementia. To determine whether an MRI score for cerebral small vessel disease (SVD) can assist in the prediction of dementia, investigators examined MRI scans from participants in three longitudinal cohorts. Participants’ SVD ranged from mild and asymptomatic to severe and symptomatic.
