Imaging and laboratory examinations play an essential role in diagnosis of CADASIL: the key diagnostic features include (1) Leukoaraiosis and multiple small infarcts presented bilaterally in deep white matter, basal ganglia, thalamus, and pons on MRI; (2) granular and osmiophilic substance layers around the vascular smooth muscles in the brain, skeletal muscle, peripheral nerves, and skin verified by electron microscopy; and (3) NOTCH3 mutations confirmed by DNA analysis [22].
